MOMA - Lee Bontecou

Posted by Dickie Webb on Tuesday, May 1, 2012, In : Artists 
Seeing work by Lee Bontecou over Spring break was a real surprise at MOMA.  I had not seen her work before but really wish I had. 

This work is Untitled but was made back in 1961.  Its form and presence seems timeless with only the materials harking back to work of that era.
