St. Louis Art Museum

I spent many years in St. Louis and the art museum was my frequent haunt.  Here are a few of my favorites:
They have redesigned the entry in recent years. There used to be at least one fountain in this area because I remember meeting people at the fountain.

One of favorite rooms with Rodin's sculpture and Chagall on the facing wall

Ernie Trova. One of his "Falling Man" sculptures. Trova used to live in St. Louis and one enterprising art student went through his trash and brought  us an original Trova door which we used as our entry at FPCC years ago.

Amedo Modiligini, the great Italian lover. I believe this is his young mistress.

David Smith
Frank Stella

Alberto Giacometti, the sculptor.  For whatever reason I like his paintings better than his sculptures.
