This is the San Diego Museum of art. They have a ramp to the right, and a separate opening for members. This day there was a truly disgruntled employee out in front haranging the visitors via megaphone. If she was truly fired for sexist reasons, why did she not just hire a lawyer?
My goal today was to see the three galleries upstairs. Much to my surprise and pleasure, one whole gallery was filled with French Impressionist work.
Here the glory of early impressionism runs rampant on this cliff face. Truly wonderful colors by Claude Monet.
Berthe Morisot surprised me by her almost monochrome image of the Seine Valley at Mezy. Expecting a far stronger palette, I came to a halt admiring her creativity and differences.
In the center, more formal gallery, were hung the Church supported art. Perhaps one could call these pieces imaginative realism.
Right in the heart of the park is a touch of modernism. To the left of the Art Museum is the Timkin Museum. Another museum of art this time from the holdings of the famous roller bearing family. It’s free when it isn’t being remodeled. To the right of the main museum is a small café, the sculpture courtyard, and a tiny free gallery all in another international style building.
