This is a collage done by Herbert Bayer and is titled "Lonely Metropolitan." Bayer (1900 – 1985), was an Austrian-born graphic designer, painter, photographer, sculptor, interior designer and architect. I really like this collage because of the grayscale and the way the hands are floating in the picture. The old building and the bright hands are a nice contrast to one another. This piece could have several different meanings which is also appealing. The shadow behind the hands is also an interesting aspect, as well as the eyes in the palm of the hands. Overall an enjoyable piece to look at.
