|Richard Estes: The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Summer 1979|
|Robert Motherwell: Elegy to the Spanish Republic No. 110|
|Frank Stella: Harran II|
|Agnes Martin: White Flower|
|Andy Warhol: Orange Disaster #5|
It isn't easy to chose favourite works in such a hugely enjoyable show, but certainly Andy Warhol's chilling Orange Disaster #5 (1963), with its electric chair repeated 15 times, Roy Lichtenstein's humorous Pop Art growling dog Grrrrrrrrrrr!! (1965), and Kenneth Noland's gorgeous 1969 colour field painting April Tune, stick in my mind.
|Roy Lichtenstein: Grrrrrrrrrrr!!|
