After an intense performance, there's nothing like a little R&R.
For Bruce Springsteen, whose sold-out show Thursday night in the First Niagara Center is still ringing in music lovers' ears, it came in the form of a visit to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. One patron snapped the Boss admiring a particularly appropriate painting by Matisse, the 1939 masterpiece "La Musique":
According to an Albright-Knox patron who asked to remain anonymous, Springsteen "spent a lot of time" with Albright-Knox Director Janne Sirén, and "went through the whole museum, thanked everybody, very sincerely."
Another shot from the gallery, showing Springsteen and Sirén together:
In a statement, Sirén said Springsteen "was as amazed by the Collection as we were by him.”
And here's more on "La Musique" from the gallery's website.
