ST. PAUL'S FROM TATE'S
It is always interesting to read about a person you have met, or a place you have visited.
I was fascinated to read about the Dia Museum in Beacon,which we had visited when in New York, and its patron, (whom we have not met!) in the New York Times today.
When we visited the Tate Modern last week, the eye catching sculpture of the 30 ft. spider, by Louise Bourgeoise, reminded me instantly of the huge one we had seen in the Dia gallery. It is called Maman and has a pouch with eggs, made of solid marble.
Sankar took this picture, and what we see in the background is St. Paul's Cathedral across the Millenium Bridge.
I had mentioned the museum in my post A Museum, English Tea and Riverside Music.
