Description of Pictures: Richard Deacon
Through September 4, 2017
What You See Is What You Get
Due to popular demand, the British artist’s first major American museum survey has been extended through Labor Day, September 4.
Richard Deacon: What You See Is What You Get is the renowned British artist’s first major museum survey in the United States. Winner of the Turner Prize in 1987 and the subject of a survey at Tate Britain in 2014, Deacon has been exhibited frequently internationally and remains a pioneering figure in the field of contemporary sculpture. A self proclaimed “fabricator”—a maker of things and of meaning, neither carved nor cast—Deacon sidesteps the issue of technique by never focusing on any one material, challenging the viewers’ expectations with unusual combinations. While the titles of his work can appear literal, they often invoke a range of metaphors, as well as mythological and literary allusions. The full range of the artist’s oeuvre includes free-standing sculptures and wall-mounted works, to glazed ceramics and works on paper.
Richard Deacon: What You See Is What You Get includes roughly 40 works from more than three decades of Deacon’s oeuvre. Along with loans from private collections as well as from institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., this exhibition will debut a new work by Deacon.

See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Wikipedia Description: San Diego Museum of Art
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The San Diego Museum of Art opened as the Museum of Fine Arts on February 28, 1926. The funders turned over ownership of the building to the City of San Diego. It is located in Balboa Park. The museum building was designed by architect William Templeton Johnson.
The Museum's collections are encyclopedic in nature, with pieces ranging in date from 5,000 B.C. to 2001 A.D. The museum's strength is in Spanish works by Murillo, Zurbarán, Ribera and El Greco.
There is a small eclectic Asian art gallery, a couple Impressionist era paintings, some Georgia O'Keefes (although these are not always on display) and a number of interesting modern pieces.
Additionally, they have works by Italian masters Giorgione, Giotto, Veronese, Luini and Canaletto. Works by Rubens, Hals and van Dyck represent the Northern European School.
The museum regularly hosts touring exhibits and has lately been working to display its standard collection in new ways (including an upstairs gallery discussing information which can be gathered by looking on the back of the canvas).
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
