Colors and the Vibrancy They Bring to Art Pieces

The pieces included in this gallery were chosen because of their eye-catching colors and/or their ability to utilize the colors in a meaningful way.

The Agony in the Car Park, Grayson Perry, 2012, From the collection of: Arts Council Collection
The use of colors in this picture was quite beautiful. I feel that each color was nicely used to create a storyline in the tapestry and the entire thing is pleasing to look at.
Expulsion from Number 8 Eden Close, Grayson Perry, 2012, From the collection of: Arts Council Collection
The colors in this are beautifully used and seem to help the pictures play out like scenes from a movie.
Parson Weems' Fable, Grant Wood, 1939, From the collection of: Amon Carter Museum of American Art
To me, all use of color doesn't have to be flashy. I chose this painting because of the vibrant simplicity shown, from the orange coat the man is wearing to the green grass.
Muse on Pegasus, Odilon Redon, 1907/1910, From the collection of: The Museum of Modern Art, Gunma
The blending of colors in this painting is great. They almost seem the glitter. It achieves an almost whimsical feel that would otherwise be hard to capture without the use of colors.
Di-Rotta, Alice, 2013/2013, From the collection of: Emergence
An art piece doesn't have to have every color in the rainbow to create a colorful masterpiece. I chose this mural because it successfully portrays the emotion that the artist was trying to achieve by simply using the colors blue and green.
Inscribed Royal Gemstone, Unknown, 1001 AH, From the collection of: The al-Sabah Collection, Kuwait
I chose this because the green is so strikingly vivid.
Inscribed Royal Gemstone, Unknown, 600 AH, From the collection of: The al-Sabah Collection, Kuwait
Like the gemstone before this, the color caught my attention.
Placebo for My Warriors, Faiza Butt, 2008, From the collection of: AAN Collection
This was very beautiful to me. I chose it because I think the colors adequately convey thoughts and emotions.
Autumn Leaves, Yokoyama Taikan, 1931, From the collection of: Adachi Museum of Art
I chose this because of the contrast of the red tree against the blue river.
Cats in a Port, Murakami Yuji, 2006, From the collection of: Adachi Museum of Art
I chose this because with the smoky backdrop, the red really pops out and becomes a focal point for the painting.
Toilette of Venus, Simon Vouet (French, b.1590, d.1649), 1629, From the collection of: Cincinnati Art Museum
I chose this because of the vibrant colors used for all of the fabrics.
C215, C215, 2013/2013, From the collection of: Bratislava Street Art Festival
The colors in this mural add not only to the meaning of it, but also to the vividness of the piece.
We are Sailing the Suez Canal on Our Way to Australia, Gina Sinozich, 2003, From the collection of: Australian National Maritime Museum
This caught my eye because of the rich, blue color used for the water and the golden sand.
Portrait of A. Moravia, Renato Guttuso, 1982, From the collection of: Casa Museo Alberto Moravia
I really liked the colors used for this man's clothes. I especially like his red shirt which looks near photographic.
Untitled, Os Gêmeos, 2010, From the collection of: MAM, Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo
I chose this because no particular color was used, but they each brought the picture to life in some way. I particularly like how the sky mimicked almost every color that was used throughout.
