Moment of Pleasure

TomWesselman_PaintingNo38

This is image is a part of  Tom Wesselmann’s Bedroom Painting #38 — the face is so great I thought I’d share it with all of you.  I love that it draws the viewer in with a seductive keyhole glimpse into a private moment of pleasure and yet we don’t get to see the whole scene or even the whole woman. We are left wondering who or what is turning her on–provoking a combination of intimacy and inaccessibility that I find intriguing and sexy.  Hope you do too!

For those of you in the DC area, you can see the painting at the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum of Contemporary Art.
