7 Pieces As Playful As Items At The Met’s Modern And Contemporary Art Wing


the met modern and contemporary art wing

Home to pieces by Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein, and Georgia O’Keefe, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Modern and Contemporary Art wing is a who’s who of the modern art movement. It was the modernists’ unusual subject matters (like Mark Rothko’s colorful shapes) and techniques (cue Jackson Pollock’s paint splatter application) that left them vulnerable to criticism for straying from tradition. Today, these walls exhibit some of the most sought-after names in the art world. Here, Luxe explores seven pieces with design and colors as playful as those found at the department.
