Jackson Pollock/No. 5 /1948 Glorious. I want an original Jackson Pollock in my front entry. Right, BAM!, smack in the middle... where everyone can see, but no one can touch.
Jackson Pollock, "Number 10," 1949. I was really struck by this painting when I saw it in Boston - it's hard to tell from a picture on the internet, but there are so many different levels and textures in this. It has a three-dimensionality and really comes alive when you look at it. You can definitely see the Dionysian elements in Pollock's work, but up close you can see the Apollonian as well.
