LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART (LACMA)

Petit Futé's opinion on LOS ANGELES COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART (LACMA)

Vintage plate 2020

When driving on Wilshire Boulevard, LACMA is often recognized through Chris Burden's Urban Lights, which features more than 202 streetlights from cities in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, all lit by solar energy at night. The architecture, designed by Renzo Piano, seems a little cold at first sight. Once you enter the premises, you realize how much the wide open spaces let the works breathe, like visitors. The museum is made up of separately applied pieces, i. e. donations from collections that make this place an artistic patchwork where everyone will find shoes at their feet... or pipes at their mouths: it is here that Magritte's famous painting La Trahison des images (1929), labelled by the artist, is located: This is not a pipe. Among the 150,000 works of LACMA, we also include Marie-Madeleine with the smoking flame of Georges de La Tour. LACMA thus traces the history of art across the five continents, from prehistoric times to the present day, spread over several buildings:

Ahmanson Building: modern and contemporary art. This wing houses the exceptional collection of modern artists assembled by Janice and Henri Lazarof, whose value is estimated at over $100 million. Pablo Picasso, Constantin Brancusi, Joan Miro, Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky are among those featured. Contemporary art is represented by Matthew Barney, Jeff Koons and Frank Stella.

Art of the Americas Building: American, Latin American and Pre-Columbian art. Latin American art is in a good position with more than 2,000 works of art. Beautiful rooms dedicated to Mexican art collections, where you will see paintings by Diego Rivera and Rufino Tamayo. The pre-Columbian rooms are particularly rich (2,500 objects). In American painting rooms, don't miss the paintings of impressionist Mary Cassatt and Georgia O'Keefe, the modernist painter of giant flowers.

Hammer Building: Korean art (sumptuous ceramics) and Chinese art (many Buddhist sculptures), but especially pieces from Mesopotamia and Egypt. Reopening planned for the end of 2019.

Pavilion for Japanese Art: Closed until 2020 for works, this space brings together Japanese prints, sculptures, partitions and ceramics (from 3000 BC to the present day) in a very beautiful building.

Resnick Pavilion: dedicated to contemporary temporary exhibitions, always of the highest quality (photography, painting, installations...)

Très beau musée avec des collections très variées. Si vous souhaitez visiter tous les bâtiments, il faut prévoir d’y rester au moins 5h. Un musée à faire absolument pour les amateurs d’art.
