Hahn/Cock and the CapitolHahn/Cock and the Capitol"Hahn/Cock", 2013, by Katharina Fritsch (German, born 1956) on the roof of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Glass fiber reinforced polyester resin fixed on stainless steel supporting structure. In the background is the Capitol.

I recently visited the National Gallery of Art, here in Washington, D.C. and really liked this 14½ -foot sculpture of a blue rooster ("Hahn/Cock" by Katharina Fritsch). When I was younger, I was a big fan of the classics and some of the early modern artists, such as the French impressionists. I never cared for abstract expressionism or contemporary art. But as I grow older, I find myself gravitating more towards the later modern artists and contemporary art, like this enormous blue rooster. It's the creativity that impresses and speaks to me the most.
