I am adding in this link today, as it references the artist, Georges Braque, behind two of yesterday's paintings. Tracy was writing about the impact art has on her, and by chance, I was paying a visit to the Gallery that day and decided to track down his works.
Today I'm bringing this series from the National Gallery of Canada to a close. Alexander Calder's mobile sculpture Jacaranda dates to 1949. Wire and sheet metal, painted black, hang in this particular space, surrounded by the works of other artists.
I showed you these two sculptures last time I was here, but I thought they shared the same name. Canadian artist Brian Jungen did these two sculptures. Shapeshifter is on the right, while Vienna is on the left. The former was done in 2000, while the latter was made in 2003. Jungen used plastic chairs, cutting them up and reshaping them into whale skeletons.
I finish this series with a look out from the balcony into the great hall of the Gallery. The Ottawa River can be seen beyond in the last light of day.
