Technique of the Artist
Manhattan by George Grosz. This oil painting on canvas is a must see. The technique used by Grosz makes this work particularly interesting. Rather than painting the Manhattan skyline from background to foreground, layering all the skyscrapers as they are in reality, Grosz overlapped lines and buildings making the skyline look confusing and endless, much as it appears to those who are there.
Design of the Museum
My favorite space in the Harn was the Asian Water Garden. Spending time out in the garden was a good way to clear my head. The set up of the garden was very beautiful, and it was nice to see an outdoor space in the museum.
