America's Most Wanted Painting


According to a survey organised by the artists Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid, this is the painting that most Americans would like to see.  The work of art was created from the survey results and produced..."a landscape with water and mountains, whose predominant colour is blue (44 per cent), showing a wild animal and a historical figure.  The result looks absurd, within a tranquil landscape we see George Washington dead-centre, looking lost near a wide river while deer wander nearby." - Cynthia Freeland, VSI Art Theory.

You can see the 'most wanted' paintings, along with each nation's least desired picture, here at the Komar & Melamid page.
