Murphy Sculpture Garden

Last month we were in Malibu for The Man's graduation.

We took a few extra days to explore the California coastline. We went to The Getty Museum. Simply AMAZING!!! And we also went to the Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden at UCLA.

I didn't photograph every piece. Some I didn't love. Some didn't photograph well. But below are a lot of my favorite pieces.

this face stencil was painted on a wall at the sculpture garden. i'm fond of well-placed stencils like this one.

Mulier by Eric Gill

Ptolemy III by Jean Hans Arp

Freya by Gerhard Marcks

Maja by Gerhard Marcks

Autumn by Henri Laurens

I don't see Autumn here At All!!! Hmmm, unless maybe the model's name was Autumn?

Heroic Head by Aristide Maillol

Pensive by Deborah Butterfield

I LOVE Deborah Butterfield's work. What a nice surprise to find one here.

Mère Ubu by Joan Miro

Two-Piece Reclining Figure, No. 3 by Henri Moore

The Walking Man by Auguste Rodin

Having just finished reading Steve King's The Stand, this one freaks me out a little.

I can't find out the artist and title of this one :(

Night by Anna Mahler

Standing Woman by Gaston Lachaise

I love how strong she looks!

Head of France by Emile-Antoine Bourdelle

Desnudo reclinado by Francisco Zuniga

Or Reclining Nude. I must tell you this was my FAVORITE! I love when artists play with proportions like this. And her face is very lovely.
