We were looking at this boring self portrait by Carl Moll b/c the professor is a super square who hates Klimt/thinks Schiele was a crazy person and said Kokoshcka should have died earlier….(what. what.)
And I’m like.. wait. Wait one second….that’s…that’s…Minne. And the professor’s like, “what?” And I’m like, “George Minne’s Kneeling Youths… I think….”
UM YES. And then I’m like “Yea….I think…I think…that those sculptures were actually also originally exhibited with Klimt’s Adele Bloch Bauer” and the professor is like….”???”
UM. SO I went home and sent him all these pictures.
if you like elizabeth moss, hate patriarchy, are intrigued by all-women colonies and/or the landscape of new zealand, i promise top of the lake will be your JAM. Dooooo it.
