What is your favorite work of art, and why?
Mine will always be Monet’s Wild Poppies, near Argenteuil, 1873. The splashes of color, the symmetry betwen the tree and the larger female figure, the way the child’s face draws the eye, and the general poise of the entire layout. Actually, I don’t know why I like it so much, but I was willing to live on eggs and white-bread toast for a week so I could afford my treasured oversized print.
