Water

About

Artworks that depict the fleeting forms and colors of water as observed from a distance, studied microscopically, or experienced from within. Notably included are works by Impressionists like Claude Monet, who famously rendered the subtleties of a body of water at sunset, with its varying shades of blue and dancing flecks of orange and yellow. In photography, Peter Hujar captured the tonal contrast of waves while Hiroshi Sugimoto’s black-and-white, nearly abstract photographs present the quiet calm of undisturbed seascapes. And even in sculpture and land art, Maya Lin explores water’s various phases and shapes, as in Wavefield, her iconic work that transformed a grassy field into a sea of undulating waves.
