Fine Art: The White House


The New York Times today, featured some of the art that the Obamas chose to display in the White House. Most is modern and contemporary of varying styles both sculpture and painting. Below are some of my favorites. The painting above is by an artist named Glenn Ligon. This particular piece that reads, "I feel most colored when I am thrown against a sharp white background" is actually on display in Cleveland. The first time I saw it was after the reopening of the East Wing. I am pretty sure that this piece was not displayed until then. I was so moved by the words when I first saw it, and I am glad to see that the Obamas chose a piece by the same artist.

Which pieces would you display in your house?
