December 27th we, finally, visited the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo.
Although it’s not a huge space, the Albright-Knox Gallery is a great collection of modern and contemporary art. Opened when Abraham Lincoln was the President of the USA, 5 years before Canada was even a country, it’s the 6th oldest museum in the USA, and the first one to have a female director (before women could vote). It has always collected from living artists, many of which have hanged out in its building.
The kids enjoyed, particularly the kinetic art section. It’s a totally worth while visit: Cézanne, Rodin, Picasso, Pisarro, Brancusi, Matisse, Renoir, Monet, Degas, Seurat, Weber, Giacometti, Delaunay, Toulouse-Lautrec, Ernst, Gaugin, Ray, Tàpies, Rodchenko, Flavin, Judd, Kahlo, van Gogh, Richter, Dali, Moholy-Nagy, Picabia, Magritte, Bourgeois, Close, Ruscha, Guston, Baselitz, Viola, Serra, Emin, LeWitt, Nauman, Gottlieb, Bacon, Calder, de Kooning, Stella, Gorky, Lichtenstein, Pollock, Johns, Rothko, Oldenburg, Rauschenberg, Rosenquist, Vasarely, Warhol, Dubuffet, Léger, Mondrian, Miró, Tanguy, de Chirico, Chagall, Kandinsky, Gris, Braque, Modigliani, Klee, Kusama…
