I backtracked a bit from where I left off yesterday to photograph two paintings in one of the side corridors of the world collection. T.E. Lawrence as Aircraftman Shaw is from 1935, and is by Augustus John, a portrait of Lawrence of Arabia.
From one war to another. Dunkirk Beaches, May 1940 is by Richard Eurich, dating to 1940-41.
When I started this series I mentioned a large installation at the end of a corridor. This is it. AKA is the work of a collective of New Zealand indigenous artists, the Mato Aha Collective, done in 2019 for an exhibit here on indigenous art across the world. It appears, at least for the moment: to have stayed, dropping down nearly the full heght of the building.
And coming to the end of that walkway gives a view of the glass tower, lit up at night. We conclude this series tomorrow.
oh AKA kind of looks like a traditional woven Maori fishing net.ReplyDelete
