Modern Art

"Modern Art"

9" x 12"


The painting in the background is by Anne Truitt, and it's titled "Wall Stripes No. 3." You can find it at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. I know that a great deal of the population doesn't understand or appreciate Modern Art, "color field painting" in particular. I can't honestly say that it's my favorite period in art, but I do enjoy it nonetheless, and I wish that so many of the concepts that artists were experimenting with in the 20th century weren't so over my head.
