View Resource Comic Abstraction: Image Breaking, Image Making

This web site from MoMA presents one work each from 13 living artists, selected from about 30 pieces on display at the Museum. The underlying concept of the exhibition is that the work of these artists, although primarily abstract, shows influences from comic books and cartoons. Some of these influence are overt, such as Philippe Parreno's Speech Bubbles, mylar helium balloons, floating in a...

View Resource Lucian Freud: The Painter's Etchings

Diving into this web exhibition created by MoMA on the work of artist Lucian Freud without considering the title ("The Painter's Etchings") or reading the introductory texts can be a bit disorientating.
