Carl Bloch: The Master's Hand (on exhibit)

My in-laws were in Utah tonight so we decided to take them to the Museum of Art over at BYU to see the Carl Bloch's exhibit. Incredible!



For $3 you can rent an iPad that has video, text and pictures. We got one to share and I think I had it 95% of the time.


It was so fascinating to read about the images and learn more about his life. My husband liked this one of his parents. You could tell exactly what those textures were and how they were supposed to feel.


If you're in Utah, you gotta go check it out (I think it's there until the beginning of May). Tickets are free.


Besides the multiple other paintings there the exhibit has five alterpaintings, four of them being moved for the first time.


You can download some of the images but seriously they are amazing in person!

It looks like you had fun. Corey really wants to go. I think we're going to try to go between Christmas and New Year's when we don't have school and I don't have work.

Thanks for letting us know about the iPad thing--that's totally up my alley. Every time I visit a museum or other place, I'm the one stopping to read every single sign, wanting to learn every tidbit I can.

I just might go see this exhibit all by myself so I can drink it in.

Did you take the kiddos? Did they get into it?

We loved this exhibit. Even my kids appreciated it, which was really cool.

I need to get to that. I've heard so many people say how unbelievable it is.

My husband saw the exhibit with his YM group and came home convinced that the artist must have personally been given privilege to be at the events he was painting, they were so personal and so well done.
