Nocturne in Black & Gold
Art is an essential element in creating harmony and adding life to an interior. Choosing the right piece of art for a home can sometimes be challenging since it is such a personal. One of my favorite art paintings is The Nocturne in Black and Gold (The Falling Rocket) that was painted in 1875 by James Abbott McNeill Whistler. It was a controversial impressionistic painting at the time because many rejected and criticized it as not being art.  The main idea represented in this work combines genre and cityscape, whose content was essentially emotionalistic rather than realistic.
