Tate Modern

I've never really fancied this Gallery due to not being keen on what is deemed "modern art".  People like Hirst and Emin and suchlike produce nothing that I would class as art, therfore, this Gallery has been avoided on my visits to London.  Due to bad weather during my trip in December I was in need of more "indoor" activites so I thought I would give this place an hour or two, to help pass the time.  Whilst my opinion on the vast majority of "modern art" still stands, there were a few pieces that caught my eye and I thought I would share them here.  Apologies for some blurry captions, I used my phone to take these photos.

 Pino Pascali - Trap


Richard Long - Small White Pebble Circles

 Kishio Suga - Ren-Shiki-Tai

Henri Matisse - The Snail

Piet Mondrian - Composition C (NoIII) with Red, Yellow and Blue

Lee Krasner - Gothic Landscape

Barnett Newman - Moment

Claude Monet - Waterlillies

Rene Magritte - Man with a Newspaper

Tristram Hillier - Variation on the Form of an Anchor

To be perfectly honest I'm not sure what it was that drew me to these pieces (bar the Monet).  I think they are quite varied in appearance.  The only explanation I can think of it that they all are real things or that they have tructure to them (bar the Krasner) but even that painting has detail and is not just a mishmash of brushstrokes.
I hope you enjoy :-)
