I went today at lunch time to the Museum of Modern Art and raced through an incredible and small Van Gogh exhibit that is just perfect - "Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night" (September 21, 2008–January 5, 2009). The exhibition includes "The Potato Eaters," MOMA's own "Starry Night," "The Sower" and the lovely small canvas, above, that has a Japanese wood print influence. So many of these paintings I have only seen in art books. Jewels that inspire.
The painting below is truly exquisite and a new vision. It glows and vibrates and is exuberantly alive. I must go back soon and I do intend to bring my family.
