Playing with Adam c2018..



Whenever I visit Art Gallery WA I cannot resist heading downstairs to the Centenary Galleries on the lower floor. Formerly the Perth Police Courts, restored and opened in 1995 to house historical art and many of the State Art Collection’s 19th and 20th century paintings and decorative arts. The building itself is gorgeous and draws me in like a fly to a spider's web :)


 Above the 'Sower' by Jean-Marie Valentin seen through the excessively large hands of Auguste Rodin's Adam, and below in the fore also by Rodin 'Kneeling Fauness'..


 Below the bronze casting c1974 of Rodin's well developed, overly muscled and slightly tortured looking Adam. Note the discreet angle of the shot.. I'm sure you are aware that it's not only Adam's hands and feet that are of a considerable size :) Bon weekend, take care and stay safe..

    Great shots, another bullet added to my Perth-list. Which will eventually be come true via a 17-hour direct Qantas-flight from London!

  15. What an excellent set of art shots. I love that second one. Rodin had a knack for making hands and feet and some other parts larger than life. I loved visiting his museum in Paris a few years ago.
