Art Of The Day

Happy World Chocolate Day! 

Celebrate everyone's favorite pod by checking out this collaged work by Lil Picard, in which the artist utilized crumpled chocolate bar wrappers to add crunch to an otherwise sunnily staid composition. Titled "Growth," this work is one of numerous collages Picard produced throughout the 1950s and 60s. Like many of her other collaged paintings from this period, a softened primary color dominates the picture plane, punctuated by moments of high-intensity saturation.
