Image of the Day

Lee Bontecou: Untitled, 1959 (Welded steel, canvas, black fabric, soot, and wire, 58 1/8 x 58 1/2 x 17 3/8 inches). I have seen this piece at MoMA many times but every time I look at it I find it fascinating. You can't tell from the photo but the piece is raised up like a volcano and the blackness is the dark inside. It's on view now through August 30th as part of the exhibition Lee Bontecou: All Freedom in Every Sense – visit for info and watch a short video of Bontecou discussing her work.
