The Great Upheaval

The Great Upheaval *update*

I got the chance to visit the Art Gallery of Ontario’s exhibit featuring works of Picasso, Kandinsky, and Franz on Tuesday and I must open by saying, that I did not enjoy it. I found many of the works to be stilted, boring, and reminiscent of art deco (which I am not a huge fan of). I found that the works were not my taste- I am sure that the Guggenheim considers them as masterpieces but I definitely do not agree.

I spent 45 minutes in the exhibit, and wandered to other areas of the gallery. Honestly, the entire trip was saved by my visit to the basement of the gallery where the Thompson Family’s collection of scale model ships are kept. I like miniatures, and so the detail of these high end models was exceptionally pleasing to the eye. I have some photos to post, although the lighting in the exhibit was low, and all models were encased in glass (so there is a lot of glare).
