In the mood for: underdone art

I like the look of something that is not overcooked. I love the look of something that has not been thought out more than necessary, whether in fashion, or in other art. The perfectionism still exists, but never neurotically so.

Yesterday I visited the Yale University Art Gallery, where I enjoyed these underdone pieces:


Georges Seurat | Black Cow in a Meadow | ca. 1881


John Singer Sargent | Still Life with Daffodils | ca. 1885-1895


Piet Mondrian | By the Sea | 1909

26191, 1982.92

Sylvia Plimack Mangold | Valence with Grey Cloud | 1982
