Arts and Science in NYC

2008.03.25
pixel
Petrified log
pixel
Emotion or looking at the screen for the next line? I'm guessing the latter.
pixel
Meet Toni Dolce--singer and bartender extraordinaire at the Tonic Bar. . . she could caress a song and make change at the same time. (Please search myspace.com for more info on this talented singer.) Fortunately she followed me in the line of singers more often than vice versa.
pixel
Must have been a ballad...I forget which one. My best was probably "House of the Rising Sun."
pixel
Really getting into it now...too bad the audience didn't, except for one couple--she (also a singer) was very sweet. Her boyfriend gave me a high five after "House of the Rising Sun."
pixel
These stained glass images caught my eye.
pixel
Too bad for Medusa
pixel
The Burghers of Calais by Rodin
pixel
Great portrait by Velasquez
pixel
The musical instrument exhibit had many fascinating specimens from the history of music, including this early violin.

Saxophones to the left with their cousin bass clarinets

Ornate grand piano

Three-necked guitar...can it be played by a one-necked person?
pixel
Puerto Rican guitars
pixel
Massive pipe organ

Now it's time for guess that artist. This French impressionist loved landscapes and buildings.
pixel
One of a Spanish master's most approachable works
pixel
Unmistakable self-portrait by tormented Dutchman
pixel
One of the above artist's most famous images
pixel
This Frenchman moved to Tahiti and painted there.
pixel
It's a little tougher to identify this pioneer of Fauvism
pixel
Another toughie - "Belgium's famous painter" was memorialized by They Might Be Giants in a most unlikely rock song. "Dig him up and shake his hand/Appreciate the man."
pixel
Dancers were his favorite subject - both for sculpture and painting.
pixel
Probably the most famous painting of dancers by the same artist
pixel
This Frenchman loved to paint women and children.
pixel
Lunar (or maybe Martian) sampler (or camera?) I was upstairs when I took this shot, so I'm not sure exactly what it is.
pixel
Butterfly swath
pixel
Blue on blue..whale and skylight
pixel
Imagined battle between a whale and a giant squid
pixel
Meet James Ensor
Belgium's famous painter
Dig him up and shake his hand
Appreciate the man


Meet James Ensor, They Might Be Giants

These shots are an amalgamation of my Karaoke stint at Tonic on Monday night and a family trips to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Tuesday and to the American Museum of Natural History on Thursday.
