City Landscape, 1955
Our class saw this piece of art in the museum and it was really interesting. The image is supposed to be a city landscape and it turned out to be many different colors. We went around and then we said one word that we thought described the painting. People said stuff like unique, messy, colorful, extravagant, disgusting, and more. I thought seeing it in person was amazing and it looked so much better. It sort of looks like she just threw paints and layered coatings and different paints. I learned that all the different colors evoke the nerves and arteries of the city. I think this is interesting because it shows all the different things that contain in a city, there are buildings and streets and people. This artwork is really powerful to me because at first I saw the painting and it looked like nothing but splattered paint. I thought to myself I could make this what makes t art? Then, I read the description and I interpreted the painting in a whole different way. This is a really cool piece of work and I'm glad I got to see it, talk and learn more about it.
