Homie Takes An Art Tour For Gloucester Artists NYC With Catherine Ryan

THE AMERICAN SCULPTURE WING, METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART NEW YORK CITY

Together with Augustus-St Gaudens Diana, there’s Gloucester ’s Paul Manship’s Three Bears side by side with Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington’s Jaguars.

What’s this?

Anna Hyatt Huntington Jaguars very curious and might pounce

The Met’s American painting wing is closed until Spring 2012 or Homie would have visited some other Gloucester artists and images.

Outside:

GMG readers know Manship’s famous Prometheus at Rockefeller Center ’s (skating rink!). If you are unable to go to the Bronx Zoo, where Manship’s Three Bears and Huntington ’s Jaguars adorn the entrance and were commissioned in 1932, right next to the Metropolitan Museum of Art there’s the Children’s Aid Society’s Manship gates installation. You can compare the Three Bears configuration to the one back inside the MET, which was on Manship’s property inLanesville for over 20 years. The Met’s label says near Gloucester , perhaps not knowing Lanesville is Gloucester .

That building past the Manship  is the MET, so very very close and not to be missed!

Gloucester doesn’t make it on Huntington ’s label for Joan of Arc across the other side of the city, 92nd Street , Riverside Park, NYC. The label mentions another replica in SF Golden Gate Park Palace of the Legion of Honor, but where’s the love for Gloucester ?

Hard to see at first,

Spot Homie!

Now head to CAM for some Manships there and find this

And see Gloucester ’s Huntington ’s Joan of Arc completed for Gloucester ’s 300th, same time as Craske’s Fisherman at the Wheel.

NO PUBLIC ART WAS HARMED IN THE PLACING OF THESE HOMIE SIGHTINGS!
