Field Trip to Museum of Art

Yesterday, we took a family field trip to the BYU Museum of Art - BYU Museum of Art, Field Trip
S, MK, C in front of BYU Museum of Art

Currently, they have an exhibit entitled "Sacred Gifts: The Religious Art of Carl Bloch, Heinrich Hofmann, and Frans Schwartz."  BYU has managed to borrow several amazing paintings that have never been lent out before. 

One of the first paintings seen in the exhibit is this painting titled "Agony in the Garden" by Frans Schwartz. This one is MK's favorite.

This one is titled "The Mocking of Christ" by Carl Bloch. I was stunned by this painting. It looked so much like a photograph. I kept returning to this painting while we were there.

I have been spending so much time looking at quilts and fabric I sometimes forget about other artistic and creative things. After seeing these, I have no desire to pick up paints. However, I do have a desire to seek out other beautiful things and create my own beautiful things.
