A five-year-old could do that / It's a colored square / Looks like an accident / So the artist left his garbage here
Which art usually provokes comments like these?
Also, about seven years ago, I saw a piece at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. that appeared to be a completely blank canvas, about 5' square. It did have an info placard and did appear to be an actual piece, not a placeholder for something else... though it may have been. Does anyone know who the artist might have been? If I'm remembering this right, which I may not be.
