Moscow – Detail from Backyard Museum

Moscow – Detail from Backyard Museum

First batch of pix from Moscow trip in 2010 – a detail. This one was taken on the first day I got to Moscow. I wandered up the road (Petrovka Street) from my hotel and, having passed a superb general store that was packed with meats, cheeses, cakes and pastries, each served from a counter by one or two actual people, I found an art gallery. Turns out it was the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (Petrovka Gallery). In its free-to-enter yard was this. Not just this, but a whole lot of other sculptures. A good thing for many reasons, not the least of which was that inside the museum only one floor was open. But I only discovered that later.

Please leave a comment. Many thanks.
