NAMING A PAINTING

Naming a painting….every had this problem?  Realistic painters tend to give a name that suggest where they painted the painting or they may suggest the subject ( example, Barn in winter), while abstract painters  give more esoteric names to theirs…..example, Golden Thoughts.  So exactly what is in a name?

The Wall Street Journal, Arts and Entertainment section had an very interesting article I thought you might want to read.  It was written by Daniel Grant and the title is What, Indeed, Is In a Name….?
