Blanton Museum of Art's exhibition, Turner to Monet: Masterpieces from The Walters Art Museum

October 2, 2010 – January 2, 2011
Claude Monet, Springtime 1872 (notes: you don't even notice the book) AND Mariano José María Bernardo Fortuny y Carbó, An Ecclesiastic

Jean Béraud, Paris Kiosk

Eugène Delacroix, Wild Horse Felled by Tiger, 1828

I'm not as excited by paintings as I am drawings. Drawing has a natural fluidity.

Harry Ransom Center exhibition,
Discovering the Language of Photography: The Gernsheim Collection

Sept. 7, 2010, to Jan. 2, 2011
Warren De la Rue
Notes: What and Who we choose to photograph means something.

Also, got a new art book, Yinka Shonibare. Still kicking myself for not going back to Sydney before I left Australia to see his exhibition at the MCA.

Also, from the Blanton's permanent collection and one of my favourites,
Ben Shahn, From That Day On, 1960, oil and tempera on canvas and board
