The pieces we liked at MoMa - NYC #1

Henri Matisse "The View of Notre Dame" (1914)

Andy Warhol "Campbell's Soup Cans" (1962)

Gustav Klimt "Hope II" (1907-08)

Paul Delvaux "Phases of the Moon" (1939)

Honore Sharrer "Studies for Workers and Paintings" (1943) 

And Warhol "Double Elvis" (1963)


  1. It's too bad none of the Rauschenberg's are on display right now.

    And I like the Warhol electric chair series.

  2. I totally agree, we were also hoping to see some Basquiat, but they were not on display either.

    There was a special Warhol exhibition with his motion pictures that we liked though.

  3. Lov e Andy warhol.

  4. I saw 'Basquiat a Venezia' at Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa in Venice in 1999. It was just his stuff. Lots of large canvases, painted dressers, etc.

    The Warhols I have seen all western Europe and N America. My faves are the light-on-dark ones from Rosenberg chair series. The big, wide ones.

    MoMA also has my favorite van Doesburg (which is also never on display).

  5. lovely & inspiring
