Denver Art Museum part two

A few of my favorites from a recent visit to the museum. The first picture was from an animated work. The second is “O’Keefe after Whistler” by David P Bradley and brings two different artists together in a fascinating way.

Several others are from the “Animals in Art” exhibit which is dedicated to our never-ending attraction to and the need to connect animals .

Degas Exhibit at The Denver Art Museum

The architecture of the Hamilton Building is in itself a work of art. Designed by Daniel Libeskind who is well known for edgy, geometrically interesting buildings around the world including The Jewish Museum in Berlin and London Metropolitan University. He is also known for being chosen to oversee the rebuilding of the World Trade Center in New York. The Polish born son of Holocaust survivors said he took his cue from the nearby Rocky Mountains in designing the newer building of The Denver Art Museum.

The Dancing Lesson (about 1877)

The gift shop has a beautiful display, sure to capture anyone who imagined themselves in the paintings or sketches of dancers.
