Night: Quick Bite

Daylight is waning here at Museum Quick Bites so today we’re embracing the darkness and taking a closer look at Raffaelle Monti’s, Night (1862). On display at the Detroit Institute of Arts, this lovely sculpture features a veiled, windswept woman floating above a sleeping baby.

Fever Dream: Quick Bite

Today on Museum Quick Bites we’re digging into Salvador Dalí’s, Inventions of Monsters (1937). This eerie, desolate dreamscape portrays a world gone mad. Which seems especially relevant given our current events. Dalí’s surrealist paintings are heavy on symbolism and filled with bizarre juxtapositions, and Inventions of Monsters does not disappoint.
