The View

On Wednesday, I showed you a picture of the Amon Carter Museum, and mentioned that it was at the top of the hill. It is not a steep hill, but a gradual hill leading up from the nearby Trinity River.
Standing on the steps of the museum, you can see that you have a nice view of the skyline of downtown, which is less than two miles away. There is an interesting sculpture across the lawn.

The sculptures are titled Upright Motives #2 and #7. Although I count three? Anyway, they are by Henry Moore (1898-1986), who hailed from England and was apparently the  most important sculptor of the twentieth century.


  1. I shouldn't have thought the sculptures were made by Henry Moore. We had an open air exhibtion here lately and they looked quite different from yours. But anyway I like his works very much.

  2. That's quite a view Janey. The sculptures make me think of totems.

  3. I am surprised by those sculptures as they are totally different to any Moore sculptures that I have seen.

  4. Dearest Janey,
    It sure is a nice overview onto Downtown and the sculptures are in a nice spot. Strange that they are titled that way... makes one wonder!
    Hugs and happy weekend.

  5. I googled Henry Moore sculptures and it is clear that he had many different styles. Talented man!
