Museum Visit Project

For my museum visit project I went to the MoMa and I chose a sculpture called Hanging Column created by Louise Nevelson in 1959. This piece was part of a bigger installation titled Dawn’s Wedding Feast.


The works of my own that this sculpture reminded me of were projects 1, 2 and 3.       .

Museum Visit

The painting I chose is from the Brooklyn Art Museum. It is called, “Late Afternoon, New York, Winter” and it was done by Frederick Childe Hassam. The Museum lights got in the way for some of the painting, so the lights in the upper left corner going down are not apart of the painting.

   For my Museum visit i decided to go simplistic and go to the Brooklyn Museum. And it was here I found this piece of what appears to be a shark divided into three pieces, i wasn’t able to figure out or think hard enough to find a reason behind the piece, however i looked at it closer and realized that every piece was a tad lighter or darker than the other. I was already thinking that this was quite similar to project 4, but that just sealed it.


     I am comparing this piece simply because of the fact that there is a clear division of shades in the panes of glass of which the shark is in. And it reminded me of the amount of texture changes and colors swaps we had to do in project 4. And while this piece is not as complex and doesn’t have that same detailed background as project 4 had, it still struck me as similar and compatible for comparison.
