Homage to New York

OK, I really loved Jean Tinguely’s Le rêve de Sofia Loren when the Museum of Modern Art in Brussels had it out. Of course, I liked it because you pushed a button and it started up, causing the museum guards to go nuts. That is my theory on why it vanished to storage.

But, good art is meant to be experienced.

In that spirit, I bring you Jean Tinguely’s most renowned work: Homage to New York

Here’s a better idea of what is going on in the above picture.

Don’t blink–

I understand that the entrance to New Barnes Museum (subject of the film “The Art of the Steal”) in Philadelphia is going to have a sculpture commissioned just for it by Jean Tinguely of Albert Barnes spinning in his grave.
