Video of the Day: Every Painting in MoMA


This video shot by YouTube user chrspck is pretty self-explanatory: it documents every single painting on display in the Museum of Modern Art’s painting galleries on April 10, 2010 (last Saturday, for the curious). We spotted Bacon, Pollock, Braques, Monet, Rothko, Kahlo, Dubuffet, Picabia, Leger, Klimt, Mondrian, Warhol, Chagall, Wyeth, Johns, Gauguin, Newman, Van Gogh, Twombly, Lichtenstein, and many, many others. With the piano music twinkling in the background, the video becomes as aesthetically abstract as MoMA’s permanent collection. In fact, we’re feeling pretty Zen right now. Watch for yourself after the jump.
