Art

September 19, 2009

On Friday we visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  We studied the items from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, them moved up to the modern wing to do some sketching.  After walking through much of the museum, the thing that made the biggest impression on Logan … “Why are all the statues naked?  It’s disgusting.”   We talked about the roles of realism and the ideal human form in the works on display, along with the problem of presentism in our interpretation.  I don’t think I changed his mind.
