Robert Ryman is the O-Dog of Modern painting, (Issues of Black and White).

According to Roger Ebert's review of "Menace II Society," Allen Hughes said of his film, "If you hate blacks, this movie will make you hate them more." I feel like that about Robert Ryman's paintings: if you already feel threatened by challenging works of art, you will probably really, really dislike Ryman's work.

Personally, I think Robert Ryman is a good painter. And, if you haven't seen "Meance II Society," it's good too.
