Quick question: any of you out there appreciate art?
Personally, I don't understand "Modern" art, therefore cannot appreciate it.
I prefer the beautiful landscape paintings of Turner, Claude Lorrain and Poussin.
I'm also a fan of 17/18th Century Dutch/Flemish "every-day life" paintings....Maes, Vermeer, de Hooch etc.
Anyone else out there appreciate these sorts of paintings? LOL, I'll soon find out by the number of replies.
Looking forward to visiting the Art Galleries in San Diego on my visit there in 2 weeks time.
There is a fabulous exhibition of 1800s American Landscape paintings ("American Sublime") on at the Minneapolis Institute of Art....the last leg of its 3-city tour, having previously been exhibited in the Tate Britain (London) and Philadelphia Art Gallery earlier this year.........beautiful views of the American Landscape, you ought to go & have a look if you're near Minneapolis!
