At Leeum: Francis Bacon, Arshile Gorky, & Rothko

Earlier this year, my friend introduced me to the wonderful Starkness, a kind of Terror in Francis Bacon's art. This little image doesn't do it justice of course. This is something that has to be experienced at the gallery...

This is Arshile Gorky's work Study for Agony. It's so fresh and sophisticated, playful and serious.

Then, there is Rothko of course. If a prayer ever got painted, it would most likely be a Rothko.
