But what really got me hopping is the interesting art piece on the wall. The 1960s artwork by Al Held is in such stark contrast to the antique settee. l like it! Nothing else is needed in that space. Less is clearly more.
Al Held (1928-2005) was an American abstract expressionist painter. He was particularly well known for his large scale hard-edge paintings.
I particularly like his black and white pieces from the late 60s.
Here is a most recent sale at Christie’s of one of his 1960′ pieces. See here: Christie’s.
Until I can find and afford the real deal – well, maybe I just need to be creative and make something along that line myself. I have always loved the 2 frame effect. Lovely!
