Tom Wesselmann "Lulu"

This painting was done for a benefit print for the Metropolitan Opera. Lulu was known the main character of the Alban Berg Opera and she was known for seducing all the men in her life and breaking their hearts. Even though this painting has simple lines in most of the painting it still expresses emotions. To me she looks sad to neutral maybe trying not to show her true emotions. This painting has bright colors and simple imagery and that is what drew me to this painting. There is a great use of complimentary colors that makes the woman stand out really well as well as great composition. Overall i think this is a great painting.
