grounds for sculpture

There’s an amazing sculpture garden in Hamilton, NJ, just outside Trenton.  It covers 35 acres and is filled with fabulous contemporary sculpture.  Some pieces are large and easily visible; but you have to look for others, hidden behind hedges and doors and around walls.  The terrain is wonderfully diverse with rolling grass knolls (and you’re allowed to walk on the grass) and concrete and dirt paths cutting throughout the grounds.  There’s lots of trees and shrubs giving plenty of shade and lots of benches for rest or contemplation.  You’ll walk over Monet’s bridge with a misty spray rising up, almost enveloping the woman bathing on the bank of the pond, a sculpture inspired by Renoir’s “After the Bath.”

 

Most of my favorite works are those by J. Seward Johnson who is known for sculpting ordinary people doing ordinary things and for sculpturally representing famous paintings such as The Boating Party and Terrasse at Ste-Adresse.  In the café garden you’ll notice a man and a woman already seated at a table with a waiter hovering in the background, ready to pour their coffee, based on Manet’s painting“At Pere Lathuille’s.”  There's something wonderful to be discovered everywhere you turn.
