Light is integral to every visitor’s experience at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The museum’s architect, Tadao Ando, essentially treats light as a material that is as necessary as the concrete of the walls, the steel supports, the granite floors, and the sheets of glass that connect the museum interior to the nature and city that surrounds it.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, it is clear that the New York gallery world has suffered a colossal blow, with scores of galleries devastated, countless works of art destroyed, and heaps of historical material washed into the Hudson. It is impossible for these events not to prove the ultimately ethereal and fleeting nature of artworks. It is from this perspective that I started to rethink one of the Modern’s recent acquisitions that is currently on view, Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing #50 A, 1970.

Just as Lucian Freud: Portraits closed, the Modern’s Education Department wrapped up our final class for The Muse, a studio course where participants enjoyed a hands-on approach to studying the special exhibition. Led by renowned local artist Matthew Bourbon, the class spent time in the galleries discussing the muse and its function in Freud’s practice, as well as its historical role in painting. Matthew also introduced the work of some of Freud’s contemporaries, discussing alternative ways of dealing with the figure on the canvas.
