The dangers of modern art
Jackson Pollock. (1912-1956) One: Number 31, 1950 1950. Oil and enamel on unprimed canvas, 8' 10" x 17' 5 5/8". Katheryn Park, tired, resting on bench, 2006. We're in NYC, one of the 1st stops: the recently renovated Musuem of Modern Art (or MoMA). We've both seen this collection many times, including the once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the most famous pieces at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston in late 2003.
This is after a day of checking out all six floors of MoMA.
