- Musical Moments by Rene Magritte 1961 Pasted paper, watercolor, and conte crayon on paper
This is a very wonderful piece by “Belgian Surrealist”, Magritte. It is guaranteed to make music lovers very happy. The work is of three figures that are positioned in front of a beige background. They are completely covered in musical notes and song lyrics. This reminds me of origami, and has some essence of Cristo’s work. I especial y love the musical bird that is flying overhead. The other two figures are almost bulbous in shape, and appear to tilted at an angle. Magritte’s use of curtains make this almost seem like it takes place in a theater. I would love to hear what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
- Gray Scramble by Frank Stella 1969 Oil on canvas
This is a hypnotic work by “Abstract Expressionist”, Stella. It is a series of repeated squares with many different colors. Stella incorporates various shades of gray in the work that catch the viewer off guard. The center of the painting draws the audience in, and emits a trance-like state upon them. I love the work for its beauty and incorporation of many colors. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.
