The first rooms we went into were the Contemporary/Modern rooms. These are probably my least favorite types of art, so we kind of went through them fairly quickly, but I had to stop at this leg. On my picture you can't really see but the leg actually has hair peeking out from the bottom of the pants. The piece is untitled but it is by Robert Gober, and actually uses human hair!
The next rooms we went into were the Modern European Art rooms. These are some of my favorites, as my favorite artist Monet's paintings are in these rooms. I didn't take any pictures of those this time because they haven't changed since the last time I was there and I have a bunch of pictures of them all. The first picture is "Still Life with Rayfish" by Chaim Soutine, and the second is "Dancers Tying Shoes" by Edgar Degas. Jeni was in love with the ballet dancers, and I had to pull her away. I admit, it's one of my favorites too.
I believe these were in the Renaissance era rooms, I can't find their matches on the CMA website, but all of their works on display are listed on the site, there's just so many!
These were found in the more recently opened Islamic art rooms. I love all the details Islamic art has, that was only one of a few archways. I thought the little boy's jacket was super cute, I just had to take a picture!
Next was Ancient Egypt and Greece! The sarcophagi were so cool, the Egyptians were such interesting people. and I thought the Greek pots and war helmets were super awesome.
This is the new atrium and I just thought it looked so pretty so I tried to take a picture but it just doesn't do it much justice.
I didn't take any pictures in my favorite room, the armor room, but they have the most beautiful swords and daggers, I don't think I would have wanted to fight with them. Overall it was a great day, I really could spend much more time than I did there, I didn't even make it to Gallery One. I am planning to go back sooner than later!
