  1. Is that piece at the Musee D’Orsay? I seem to remember seeing it.

  2. The original wax version of this work is at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., and the bronze model, or mast cast, is in the Norton Simon Art Museum in Pasadena. Other casts are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the National Gallery of Scotland, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen.

    So, yes ;o)

  3. Oh, I’m going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago this summer! I will look for this piece. Thanks for another wonderful Fine Art Friday.

  4. Thanks a lot. Now I’m going to get in trouble for looking at a nude woman on the internet at work. :)

  5. That is so cool.

  6. That’s not a nude, is it? ARGH!

    I could have guessed, seeing as how you are Presbyterian and all.

  7. That is really stunning.

    I bet someone somewhere sells knockoff ashtray versions.
