visit to the ogden

yesterday i finally had the chance to get to the ogden musuem in new orleans to see the walter anderson exhibit. and was totally blown away.

this quote is from the ogden website:

In a review of the Smithsonian Institution's exhibition, Washington Post critic Paul Richard
stated....... "Vincent Van Gogh is the most
famous painter in America, and here's this Mississippian whose light-struck pictures throb, as
do the disturbed Dutchman's, with furious, methodical ecstasy, and are as American as can be."
he was an unbelievably prolific artist who worked in just about any and all media, but is most well know i think for his watercolors (most on typing paper) and drawings.
his ability to distill images into repetitive patterns leaves me drooling........
you can view more of his work at this website
and later this year there will be a pbs special on him......
defintaly something to watch out for.
