Happy Thanksgiving! Keyword: ‘pie’

In a search for something pleasing from the museum’s collection to share with you all today, I typed “pie” into ArtScope. And what a nice return on my effort: 141 works came up. That’s because pie returns Pierre, and Pierrot, and pier, and pierce; along with photocopies and poppies, and more. I chose a handful of favorites I hadn’t fallen in love with before:

Joseph Raphael, Pierre Monteux Leading Orchestra, 1939

Richard Shaw, Teapot, 1973

Gerhard Richter, Spiegel, blutrot (Blood Red Mirror), 1991

Charles Scowen & Co., Stelae at South Frontispiece of Abhayagiri Dagoba, Anuradhapura, ca. 1875–90s

Vincent Fecteau, Untitled, 2005

Martin Venezky, Notes on the West: Bang, 1993

And there even was … a single slice of pie:

Martin Parr, Untitled (meringue), from the series British Food, 1995

Enjoy the day, everyone!
