Avery Court

Most of the people at the Wadsworth Atheneum were visiting the recently renovated and re-opened
galleries, featuring paintings from the museum's European collection.


But, while there, I visited Avery Court, which shows modern paintings like Dali and Kirchner.
Other than moving some paintings around, Avery Court is little changed.

Such a clean space and a great angle you took this picture in.

Talk about highly polished floors! Looks like you could skate on them; I'd be tempted to take off my shoes and do some sock-sliding. Very interesting reflections because of that polish.

Looks like the gentleman is walking on glass. His movement is offset nicely by the sculpture set in stone! (or marble)...

Jack, you do get around. Fine atmosphere in your photo. Fine, creative perspective here.

Hi Jack! I really like this photo.
I also enjoyed looking at your French photos from earlier this week. I've only eaten in one restaurant in Rouen and I think it was the one in your photo. (La Couronne?)

Ah... speaking of ice! Watch the Bruins get their arses kicked last night? Brutal TV!

Great composition! Everything about it is terrific from the balance of the living figures against the sculpture to the lines, color, and contrast of the polished floor to the flat tones of the walls. Bravo!

Love this perspective and the reflections on the floor. Well done, Jack!

Bob Crowe said...

It's good for photographers to get down on the floor/ground from time to time.

Neat reflection! Were you laying flat on the floor to make this photo?
