Black and white is a timeless choice, a style no-brainer and the universally recognised epitome of chicness. Facts which are no less true when considering artwork.
It was Picasso himself who maintained that “colour weakens” and practiced what he preached by, at times, embarking on colourless periods which produced some of his most powerful paintings including the brutally honest Guernica.
The power pairing – a favourite of seasoned collectors and newbies alike – is spectacular in all its forms. Black and white art – whether in canvas, illustration, photograph or print form – is the definition of confidence whilst also being an established choice. And their versatility doesn’t go amiss either. A black and white piece proves a useful purchase as collectors decorate and redecorate or move from home to home.
