Things To See In New York Art Galleries

USA is one of those countries of the world which is blessed with several wonderful artistic cities. However the city which I personally think is highly blessed with artistic works is that of New York and perhaps this is the reason why I decided to make New York my permanent home after migrating from the United Kingdom. There are many artistic galleries in New York for which you can take some time out for as an art lover. In this little discourse of mine I will share with you some of the most unique and beautiful art works which you can witness in New York art galleries. The works have been briefly described in the headings below

The Self Portrait

The self-portrait crafted by Rembrandt is one serious artwork. The painting depicts a man who is an artist by profession and is wearing a coat of heavier nature. The beauty of the picture lies in the black velvet which has been placed on the head of the man. The Portrait can be witnessed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Untitled

Untitled as the name shows is a strange painting which has been made by Cy Twombly. The painting depicts different irregular lines that have been crafted brilliantly. The lines are similar to the signal lines which we often see in different pictures. The painting is placed in the Museum of Modern Art.

Number 31

The Number 31 is a wonderful artwork. The originator of this painting is Jackson Pollock. The painting is very complex in nature and as a viewer you simply absorb into this paining in order to find the missing links. The Museum of Modern Art has the privilege of having this painting under its jurisdiction.

The Red Studio

The Red Studio has been painted by Henri Matisse. The painting depicts a room which has a red complexion. The furniture and walls in the painting have been presented in the form of white outlines. The painting is basically a combination of creation and imagination. The painting can be viewed in the Museum of Modern Art.

The Young Woman

As the name depicts, the painting involves a young woman having her hand placed on a pitcher. The painting is a perfect specimen of attractive color strokes. Johannes Vermeer is the creator of this beautiful piece of art. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has this painting.

Storm And Rocky Mountains

The painting involves a natural environment which freshens your mind up. As you can judge from the name of the painting, this piece of art works shows you the Rocky Mountains and a storm which is coming. The name of the painter is Albert Bierstadt. If you wish to see this painting, then drive your way to Brooklyn Museum.

The Duchess Of Alba

The painting is simply awesome which shows a Dutch woman who is clad in beautiful attire. The person who made this painting was Francisco Goya. If you get the chance to visit the Hispanic Society of America then do take some time out for this painting as well.

Conclusion

These were some of the artworks which come to my mind at the moment. Yes there are many others as well, however I think the aforementioned paintings are the ones which I think are simply awesome. Art is a huge term and I think in a single discourse every aspect of it cannot be covered. This time I have discussed paintings; maybe next time I will touch upon sculptures.
