The following photos were captured during a recent trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Perelman Building, which is hosting an exhibit entitled “The Surrealists” on display through March 2, 2014.
Joan Miró’s Dog Barking at the Moon, (Oil on canvas, 1926). (Viewer please note: the photograph I captured is an alternate take on the piece. The photo you see below features the museum guard’s shadow, which I thought really added something to the original piece.)
Eugene Berman’s View in Perspective of a Perfect Sunset, (Oil on canvas, 1941)
Dorothea Tanning’s surrealist short story, “Blind Date,” accompanied by a reproduction of her painting, Birthday.
Dorothea Tanning’s Birthday, (Oil on canvas, 1942)
Man Ray’s Fair Weather, (Oil on canvas, 1939)
Salvador Dalí’s Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Premonition of Civil War), (Oil on canvas, 1936)
I hope you’ve enjoyed this surrealist smorgasbord. And, because I don’t know when to stop, here are a few images also captured at the Perelman during the same visit. For more information on the images below, which feature photographs based on Australian designer Marc Newson’s work, please visit this link.
All images in this blog post were captured by Gina Marie using a Nikon D3100 fitted with a 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR lens. (That’s technical mumbo jumbo for REALLY AWESOME ZOOM LENS.)
