Red, by Robert Wright
I adore paintings that are powerfully direct, and need little description. Hence good old Robert Wright. Encaustic. Red. It doesnâ€™t get much more direct than that.
The modernists at the 2007 Inaugural loved this piece. Iâ€™m not sure the masses did, but they probably wouldnâ€™t like Ives either.
Where does that leave me?
