PH-374, Clyfford Still, 1951, From the collection of: Clyfford Still Museum
I find it interesting that the majority of the space is yellow making the following colors on the left stand out more.
PH-929, Clyfford Still, 1974, From the collection of: Clyfford Still Museum
This painting reminds me of a Rorschach Test. You put into it your own thoughts.
Blue Study, Conor Harrington, 2013, From the collection of: Widewalls
This is interesting for many reasons, there is a lot going on and your attention is torn between the active blue lines and the subject behind them. Invokes a feeling of nostalgia, pride, or sadness.
Bulletin Announcing the Peace of Villafranca, Domenico Induno, 1861/1862, From the collection of: Fondazione Cariplo
This is interesting not only because of its palette, but also because of the amount of characters in the painting. It's a painting that you'll find many different things within each view.
The Choir of the Church of Sant’Antonio in Milan, Giovanni Segantini, 1879/1879, From the collection of: Fondazione Cariplo
I like this because the artist chose to compose something that most people would not see as interesting. Its value is the inspiration seen in ordinary things.
The Cathedral, František Kupka, 1912 - 1913, From the collection of: Museum Kampa
This is a dark painting that is hard to draw clear emotional understanding from. The color composition is beautiful and if you combine that with its uncertain message you get a sense of mystery.
Feeding Call, Sebastiano De Albertis, 1893/1893, From the collection of: Fondazione Cariplo
I like this because horses are commonly painted, but these horses were not painted in a typical fashion. Notice the saddles that have no rider.
Roses, Convolvulus, Poppies, and Other Flowers in an Urn on a Stone Ledge, Rachel Ruysch, ca. 1680s - ca. 1680s, From the collection of: National Museum of Women in the Arts
This is a beautiful still life that is painted very dark with imposed contrast. It provokes a sense of loss with a glimmer of hope and perhaps patience.
Skeleton, Ham, Myung Su, 2008, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
This painting is visually interesting. The skull is normally menacing, but in the way it has been painted, the skull has regained life.
Rhythmic composition in yellow green minor, Roy de Maistre, (1919), From the collection of: Art Gallery of New South Wales
Other than the amazing color-composition this painting evokes a sense of adventure or bravery in the unknown.
Colored Composition of Forms, 1914, August Macke, 1914, From the collection of: Albertina
I like this painting because it seems to be a well done blend of color-composition and semi-cubism but with no immediate subject matter.
Composition-Jacket, Yoo, Hyun Mi, 유현미, 2009, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
This painting is not only an amazing choice of color theory but the subject does not take up much of the painting's space. This combined with the color choices causes a sense of isolation.
Riviera south, Wolfgang Lettl, 1985, From the collection of: Lettl Collection
I like this beach scene because it is not typical. The beach is not cluttered. The setting is not tropical. And the colors are not that vibrant. It is a mundane take on a normally loud setting.
Picture Hat, Wolfgang Lettl, 1990, From the collection of: Lettl Collection
So this is interesting because the woman is naked yet wearing a hat. We also have no idea where she is. This painting is almost dreamlike yet fitting.
Volunteer Corps, Gely Korzhev, 1981 - 1995, From the collection of: The Institute of Russian Realist Art (IRRA)
Besides this painting's unique width it is also telling a story that is elaborate. Also, pay attention to the characters in the background.
