Four of us trawled the Detroit Institute of Arts Museum this afternoon on the ArtLERT mission…. Let’s start with Marie Hughes’ choices:
“It makes me feel like I’m there; I feel the chill,” says Marie, and there is no question that this painting places you right there in the winter landscape.
Marie’s other choice is this energetic Cubist work by Lyonel Feininger.
Marie brings to this painting a love of seascapes and then responds to the thrill of seeing the familiar exploded into geometric shapes.
