My husband and I went to the UCLA Sculpture Garden this morning...

Here's some of what we saw:

These are sculptures by Matisse:


Bust of a young woman; sculptor unknown.


Another young woman; sculptor unknown.


The grounds on a cool, overcast day:


Yet another nude woman; sculptor unknown.


Loved this pine tree!


The Horse and a modern sculpture; no idea who created them!


The Horse; no idea who did the work.


Yet another nude; unknown sculptor.


My husband hanging out with yet another nude!


A water feature; unknown artist.

4. I just Googled it and you're right!

The sculpture is called "Pensive" and is made of bronze. It dates from 1996, I believe.

15. Butterfield's horse reminds me of Wendy Klemperer's animal sculptures at the Portland Maine Jetport.

Deer, wolves and more. Although Klemperer uses rebar, not wood, the effect is similar.
See here for some photos.

A very nice sculpture garden you've got there!

3. You've made me jealous. Such beauty in a wonderful outdoor park.

I'm afraid I'd have to be dragged kicking and screaming at closing time.

I so need some normal.

5. All you have to do is move to LA, my dear flamin lib!

There's a lot of beautiful stuff here. The cost of living would turn your hair WHITE.

And there is no closing time for the Sculpture Garden. Plus there are benches for us old folks to sit down on!

It was really nice.

7. Love them all.

My favorite is the bust of the young woman. Has a 60s vibe to me. Lovely. Thank you for sharing. We need more art!

9. Your husband is the embodiment of gentlemanly self-possession in the company

of that highly kinetic nude.

12. Thanks for sharing...stunning sculptures, beautiful grounds--photo of pine

..loved it!

I have a red bud tree with the most interesting bark, texture--lifts and curls, called shedding..can't upload photos and cant find pic ..similiar to my tree shedding.

Not sure why I seem to gravitate toward organic colors, textures; tessellations in nature--see art in the natural world.

Paz.

14. I'm so glad you enjoyed these, my dear RestoreAmerica2020!

Some people really enjoy the organic world above all else. I'm pretty much eclectic.

I'm not sure what you mean by not being able to upload photos. I do it all the time; perhaps I could help you figure it out.

It would be grand to see your photos here!

The aesthetic slowly got into my brain
