Saluting a Pure Form of Abstraction, Long May It Wave
by Roberta Smith of The New York Times, 09/29/00.
Smith speaks of Bridget Riley as "the grand dame of British art, the queen to Lucien Freud's king."
The following links will help you get to know Bridget Riley and Lucien Freud. jeanne. October 1, 2000
Art Encyclopedia: Bridget Riley
Link on the Sintra Museu de Arte Moderna, Portugal, to go directly to Bridet Riley's painting.
If you link on the little blue house it will take you to the museum's home page.
Then go to Robert Sandelson gallery site, and link to Bridget Riley, and to her images.
While you're at the Robert Sandelson gallery site, link to
Gottfried Helnwein's Adoration of the Magi, Epiphany 1.
I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of signifiers in this work. jeanne
And while you're at the Artboy Site
take a look at the way in which this abstract art links back to the portrait.
I am fascinated by the Pixels selection.
Just link from button to button and you will get some idea of fractals and abstract art
and where some of art might go in the future.
Also, the TBS logo will give you some idea of how such abstract art is showing up in advertising. jeanne.
Now go back to see some of Lucian Freud, arguably, along with Francis Bacon,
one of the top British painters of the 20th Century. Lucian Freud was the grandson of Sigmund Freud.
Others of Lucian Freud's work are also available on the web at the WebMuseum.
