Last Sunday we went to the McNay Art Museum to see the current Andy Warhol exhibition. We really loved the large number of artworks in different medias they have, and especially the contrast between the stereotypical advertising image, which is some kind of "perfection", the glory of famous people, and the tragedy of real life.
Going with a two-year-old toddler to a museum, is kind of challenging if it isn't during her naptime at the stroller. So we had to take turns, so we both could enjoy the exhibition. Pedro had the longest turn, because he usually sketches the artworks, I take notes about references or influences I see.
Pedro drew sketches of a video about a screen test that Warhol did to different people of that time. It was like portraits with little movement, some of them blinked, other smoked a cigar... unfortunately, neither of us watched Dali's part, I was really expectant of his behavior in that video.
The pencil lines are Poppy's intervetions to the sketches; oh, and the dress she is wearing, was mine when I was her age. Nene bought it to me when she was living in Paris back in 1982.
Thanks for looking!!
