Probably the most relevant museum to me in regards to Graphic Design and Art in general because it contained a lot of artwork that I had either researched myself or been talked about during lectures. Was really nice to see some of the art work in the “flesh” because quite often you only get to see it on the internet or in books and it doesn’t necessarily have the same impact that the artist may have originally liked.
Roy Litchtenstein: Drowning Girl, 1963
Have never see any of Litchensteins work apart from on the internet or in books where because of the size of them they look perfectly painted in the fact that they have no imperfections. However when you look closely you can actually see that the hand painted dots although near enough perfect do have some imperfections I also didn’t realise how big they were.
Andy Warhol: Gold Marilyn Monroe, 1962 and Campbell’s Soup Cans 1962
Jackson Pollock: One: Number 31, 1950
Again I new that Pollocks work was big however I didn’t realise it was that big. Really is quite a striking piece of work because it is placed opposite the room entrance and covers the majority of the wall.
