CINCINNATI, OHIO - MUSEUMS

Took a day trip with my Bloomington pal, Professor B (pictured below), to the mysterious city, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Part One of Three: Museums










Here's the Rembrandt from the haughty Taft Museum, filled with Dutch Masters and other distressing tidbits ...














... like this 18th century porn ...














... a George Washington with no pants on ...







... and this perplexing symbol (on the left) in the UNISEX bathroom that apparently means - 25 cents for a woman in a small square box. Alas, I had no change.




Then over to the CINCINNATI MUSEUM OF ART ...







... where P.B. communed with a large Miro ...













... I was flirted with by a John Singer Sargent Venetian woman ...
















... P.B. got embedded in an Egyptian statue ...













... I in neolithic art.



There was also a Surrealist Exhibit, including a 1960's redux by Duchamp of his "Fountain" - voted the most influential artwork of the 20th century by a bunch of Brits - but no photos were allowed in there.




And some art (details) that inspired "The Project" :







Pan elevated.












Best color ever on earth for all time?
