What is your favourite artwork, and why?

I thought it would be interesting to get an insight into people's favourite pieces because I've always been curious as to what makes an artwork stand out- knowing the artist's intention, the context in which it was created, the use of materials etc. Or is it something more personal- a feeling that they can resonate to.
p.s Mine is Matisse's The Swimming Pool because I always get emotional thinking about how he was determined to bring the swimming pool to his own living room (he was bound to his wheelchair at this time) and it is one of the first examples of collage/ cut outs being liberated from the page and imagined within a physical space.
