Taking in the Sights

Went for a stroll through the Cancerland Museum of Art not long ago.  You won’t be surprised to hear that it is a strange place.

There is no admission fee, but one does have to show a valid health insurance card to get in.

And the collection is..um…odd.

In one room, for instance, you have Edvard Munch’s The Scream, Rembrandt’s The Anatomy Lesson,  Eakins’ The Autopsy, Pavel Tchelitchew’s Hide and Seek, the right-hand panel of Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights, a Saint Sebastian by El Greco, Caravaggio’s Medusa, and Goya’s May 3rd.

Occupying pride of place in this room, however, all by itself on a long wall directly beneath a large skylight, is Cassius Coolidge’s His Station and Four Aces.

In the giftshop, one can buy paper robes, paper slippers, and small vials of hemlock marked For Display Purposes Only.

  1. I personally favor the Coolidge as it was in his fifties that he found his muse, as well as, married at 64, and had a daughter!

    There is hope for me yet!

    Sweet dreams to you and LB.
