Photographer's Note

Portraits of New York X
Music, Pink and Blue


The main picture shows a tired but interested young art-lover. He listens attentive to the info from the audio-tour.

In the WORKSHOP you can find the diptych of the scene you maybe expect here. However I used too much photoshopping so I had to upload it as a workshop to avoid the moderators had to remove it. I hope you like the artistic liberty I used for this scene.

Object Label:
For many vanguard artists in the early twentieth century, music offered a model for expressing nonverbal emotional states and sensations. Georgia O'Keeffe was fascinated with what she called "the idea that music could be translated into something for the eye," but her references to music in the titles of her paintings derived equally from her belief that visual art, like music, could convey powerful emotions independent of representational subject matter. In Music—Pink and Blue II, the swelling, undulating forms imply a connection between the visual and the aural, while also suggesting the rhythms and harmonies that O’Keeffe perceived in nature.
