Oooohhhh… this is difficult without an art movement specified. I really, really love art, okay? A lot, a lot. Most of my favorites would be in the modern wing of a gallery though — I love the abstract expressionists particularly (Rothko, my love!) as well as pop art (especially Lichtenstein) and a handful of de stijl as well (the first time I saw a Mondrian in person I could hardly breathe). So, erm, not sure if I can answer this question properly.

Yes! I love modern art! Pollock is my jam! Both he and Rothko kinda hard to appreciate when you’re not standing right in front of them.
I got to see the Rothko Chapel while it was still here at the National Gallery in DC and it was a spiritual experience. Truly. Took my breath away. I have a picture of me standing next to one of them… even though we weren’t supposed to take pictures (shhhhh… I’m a naughty girl)
(Also me with long hair good golly this picture is old)
Cooool. I dig what you’re wearing.
If you’re Rothko fans, flippyspoon and msjosephinemarch, and you like plays, you should definitely see Red if you get the chance. Very intense, but fabulous at capturing an artist’s process, I thought.
Red is fantastic! I saw it twice when it came to Broadway. Alfred Molina was so powerful in the role. I will second that play recommendation!
And since I’m in the mood to post old pictures here is a photo of me with Eddie Redmayne after seeing it a second time for my birthday:
