Turns out that the Masterpiece Board Game has worked its magic on the next generation in my family as well. My niece was distracted and missed this Jackson Pollock painting when we passed by it the first time, even though it's displayed in a place of significant exposure. We all had to walk back a ways with her because she was so disappointed to have missed it. I loved that she cared!
Here are four more works from the 1970's version of the Parker Brothers' Masterpiece game:
|Greyed Rainbow by Jackson Pollock, 1953|
|A Self Portrait by Van Gogh, 1886/88|
"Based on the contrast of complementary colors. The blue-green background tone serve as a foil to the orange-red of the artist's hair and beard. The brushwork adds intensity." (notes from the museum)
