Fukuoka Art Museum Reviews
Virtually private viewing of some masterpieces Mar 21, 2008
I had a very pleasant surprise in Fukuoka recently.
I made the choice to go to the Fukuoka Art Museum based on it being in a park and I wanted to see something else in the area since I was taking the train. I had no idea what to expect since I know nothing of Japan.
Amazing experience for me. I was the only person walking through the gallery when I round the corner and think to myself "That looks similar to Chagall" ..I got closer and it was. Next to Chagall, Miro.. I turn around.. Dali and Rothko... and around the next bend is Warhol and Basquiat.... Numerous other artists were displayed as well, but I only mention these because in art school we had to copy a master, I painted a Chagall.. Not just any, but _the_ Chagall in Fukuoka (The Flying Sleigh).. Miro was the reason I started painting.. and Basquiat is my greatest influence these days...
So yes.. Let's just say that the Fukuoka Art Museum was an emotional day for me :)
