RE: Modern art

Tolouse-Lautrec looks a little bit like Monet and Picasso put together...

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

I would advise you culturally deprived underacheivers...
LOL
Can't agree more. Who in the first place titled this thread (note: it's a rather rhetorical question)?

I betya I can sell my soiled underwears as art. I do produce some intersting pattern a bit a la Van Goh but with a Matisse touch.
No, wrong. Regards to your soiled undewear you are thinking Jackson Pollock if you have loose sphincter muscle coupled with diarrhea, William S. Burroughs if you had some explosive bowel, and Georges Rouault if you simply forgot to take off your underwear. I don't feel charitable enough to post their signature works since it is very late but do me a favor and at least do some Google image search to understand what I am talking about.

Kline did it by reducing the subject to an auto-indicated line,devoid of meretricious ornament and reduced to the essential...

RE: Modern art

by modern, are youall meaning modern or contemporary?

theyre two different things, i still struggle with calling something two movements behind impressionism modern.

right now i am taking northern renaissance painting in europe and impressionist/post impressionist history. its killer stuff. but damn, i surely hope i can figure out the differences between the van eycks, van der wygens and limbourgs!

all this bergundian shit looks the same but it is my absolute favorite period in all of arts history. who couldnt like the duke of berrys book of hours?! we've spent a week on it already, its an amazing manuscript!

boy...i aspire to such things.http://cgfa.sunsite.dk/limbourg/

You are thinking of the 15th century Flemish school,check out Memling,Van DerWeyden,Bosch,Van Dergoes,et,al. Wonderfully detailed evocations of everyday life and domestic furnishings,even their religious works,altarpieces,triptychs and such incorporate contemporary architecture,dress and home furnishings,and as for Hieronymus Bosch there are not words enough to adequately describe his horrid,dreamlike evocations of an alternate reality,unless you are familiar with the effects of Lysergic Acid................

RE: Modern art

I smoke Marlboro lights and drink black coffee and have created quite a few phlegm-ish masterpieces in my time, thank you very much.
