Monet paints his wife on her deathbed. Haunting and sad.

I find mother child portraits to be full of emotion.

The most famous one of all – Starry Starry Night.

I love the use of yellow and blue. Yellow stars convey warmth.

Found this one with the clear outlines very captivating as well.

And so I left the exhibition reluctantly, hoping to return on a quiet day.

Extremely tempted at the museum shop but didn’t buy anything – this time.

I hope you go see the exhibition which will be in Singapore till 5 Feb 2011. What I featured is just a small portion of the 140 precious artworks on display. I want the exhibition to be successful so that more amazing Art will come our way. Although secretly I like the quiet of an empty museum. Very peaceful indeed.

    Oh my goodness, this is awesome. At least this would be a worthy exhibition for those who have yet to visit the Louvre 🙂 Fantastique.
