Philadelphia Art Museum


I love the Philadelphia Art Museum!  The first Sunday of the month is “Pay What You Want”.   I am so glad that they do this so that we can enjoy the museum even when money is tight.

Here are some of my favorite pieces from the museum-

Van Gogh painted lots of sunflowers!  Here is a website that teaches us about this series and subject.


Monet – beautiful and peaceful http://www.claudemonetgallery.org/


Renoir – always beautiful http://www.philamuseum.org/collections/permanent/82727.html



Degas – ballet is a favorite muse – Paintings and sculpture http://www.edgar-degas.org/

    We have very similar taste! I love the sunflower series, but not many of his others. The colors are so vibrant and happy.

    Monet & Degas are two of my favorite artists.

    I’m a huge fan of art museums =) My favorite out here is LACMA and well, The Getty. But that one looks rather nice.

      Hi Lisa, I do love Van Gogh. It was great to get your note.

    Japanese footbridge, every time. When my daughter was small she did a copy of that painting that was featured in a children’s book about using famous artists to teach children art.

    Thanks for sharing. I love art museums. Although I live in PA, I haven’t spent much time in Philly, except for work. I need to change that.
