Collection: Top Ten: A Tribute To The Greats, Selected By Brittany Baksa (online exhibition)
About the exhibition
This exhibition features ten carefully selected works from the collection that (un)-intentionally pay tribute to some of the most influential artists of our time. You may recognize the likeness of Robert Motherwell's swelling ink spots, Wassily Kandinsky's "Squares With Concentric Circles," the familiar colored rectangular forms of Piet Mondrian, or the childlike expressions of organic shapes and vibrant color formed by Joan Miro. The aforementioned artists have made a significant impact on the world of art, through which their influence can easily be seen in the work presented in this exhibition.
