I visited the New Orleans Museum of Art last week.
I’d been before, about ten years ago, I guess, and at that time I was far more interested in their collection of modern stuff—surrealism, pop, conceptual, etc.
Over the years my taste has veered strongly toward Renaissance stuff, and I think I got a lot more out of NOMA this time.
Anyway, I took some shots with my antique iPhone, and present them here with no commentary.
