I’m just adding a few more photos from the Amsterdam trip, now that I’ve had some time to do some other things. These are from the Stedelijk Museum. I find that modern art museums make fun places to goof off with a camera, even if I do have problems with focusing in low light. But I’m too lazy to look up all the names of the artists, so I’m only going to list the ones I know (see bottom):
1. Textile by unknown (to me) artist. 2. Mondrian paintings 3. Malevich (I can still hear one of my old painting teachers, Richard Olsen, rapturously exclaiming in his Milwaukee smoker’s rasp, “Ah, Malevich! His use of negative space is perfect!” 4-7. Karel Appel 8. Frank Stella, no doubt 9-11. Examples from the product design galleries 12. Sam Francis 13. Unknown (to me) painter 14-15. Examples of graphic design 16. Chairs. Uh, oh. I really should know this. I think the one on the left is by the Finnish designer Alvar Aalto?
