nature, Johnson, Kelly, Bertoia

Last week while visiting the garden Philip Johnson designed in 1953 for the Museum of Modern Art I was charmed by the anthopomorphic postures of the Bertoia chairs, also just over fifty years old, which are found strewn (rather mysteriously drifting) about the elegant grounds.

And, oh yeah, it is after all a sculpture garden, so I shouldn't, and couldn't, ignore the more formal installations.
