A new painting included in the grouping Museum Hours - one of my personal favorites - a woman standing before Robert Motherwell's 'Elegy to the Spanish Republic, 54", in the Museum of Modern Art, New York City.
I admit, I sway more towards representational art but any time I approach an abstract painting by Motherwell, Franz Kline, Robert Diebenkorn or Mark Rothko, to name a few - I stop and stare for a good while. With Motherwell and Kline, it's the largeness, the stark forms of black and white maybe that grabs my attention. I don't strive to 'understand' it, I just enjoy it.
