ART HISTORY

Art Lessons
Contemporary Art


If you want to be an artist, you want to make sure you
don´t look like a fool when someone asks you what your opinion is about Gauguin or Da Vinci or the impressionists or whatever...

Trust me...they will ask you! You don´t have to be a walking encyclopedia on the subject or even know the name of EVERY artist. But you definitely need to have at least a general knowledge on the subject.

Not only that, you will also learn by observing the works of the great masters.

Wherever you are, be sure to visit every Museum, Art Gallery or Art Fair. That, too, is a learning experience not only of art history but also of art techniques and art appreciation.


HISTORY LESSONS:

 1.  The camera oscura and VanGogh´s perspective frame
 2.  Famous artists who copied other artist´s work
 3.  Mona Lisa - The Enigma of the Mona Lisa smile finally solved.
 4.  Van Gogh and Gauguin
5.  Ancient Art
6.  Cave Paintings & Pottery

And there are many more I like in each of the continents (specially among the contemporary artists) but if I were to name them all, this blog would never end.

But, definitely, at the top of my favorites list are:  the great master artists and sculptors from the Classical Period: Classical Period.


And, without a doubt, my favorite all time artist:

ME !!



The truth is there´s no such thing as a good or a bad artist. We can learn much from each one of them. Preference is just a matter of aesthetical tastes and we each have our own preferences.
