As one who was fortunate enough to have had instructors who taught the classical art forms-
I say - THANK YOU - my Elementary art teacher & my High School art teacher--
and- since MUSIC is also Art- I thank my Elementary music teacher and my HS choral instructor..
and my piano teacher-she put up w./ me for 10 years!!
TO THE CLASSICS!!
I found a wonderful site -The Art Renewal Center -
After reading the above link-I got affirmation that realistic art is the only way to go--and I also found out about the plight of Rembrandt's great work- The Night Watch:
Night Watch by Rembrandt- was not 'accepted' during his time -so- it was cut up- and hung in a gym--
It goes to show that the scam /galleries / and "art" critics - even back then- were just out to make money and did not know what they were doing--
Thank you Remus
and thank you Crusader Rabbit-
