monochrome

it may sound a bit dull, but monochrome art at the national gallery is quite interesting – it traces very early works that use black and white, or just one tone, rather than several colours – sometimes one part of the image is emphasised by just picking out in black and white, so the term ‘monochrome’ is quite varied.   personally I love monotone images, I love colour too, but there is something melancholy and timeless when there is less colour – it leaves more to the imagination.   there are a lot of well known artists works in the exhibition worth seeing.
