Tretyakov Gallery

The first thing you think of as walking through the Tretyakov  is “wow a collection of world art”, oh wait we are in Moscow and this is all Russian art.  The reason for the double take is that the original collection of 2000 works created by Moscow merchant Pavel Mikhailovich Tretyakov in 1892 has an amazing span.  The […]

Seeing the video of an interview with her, learning she started her painting career in her seventies and that she had created over 1500 works of art! Seeing the […]

A short treat in Kearny, Nebraska. Mostly paintings and photography, but a growing sculpture garden as well. I happened on it on a road trip on a Sunday night when they were having an event and allowed me to peruse while the event was going on after hours. It was very refreshing after 8 hours […]
