Do you like art? If yes, what is your favorite period of art? I really enjoy modern Dutch art from the Mondriaan era.
Of course we both like impressionist paintings because you have to if you live in the Midwest. Similarly Magritte. I don’t think there’s a choice, for the same reason.
I love Dutch masters with a bazillion things going on in them… think Bruegel and Bosch. Though there’s this one dude who has a ton of paintings of monkeys named Teniers who I first saw at the Prado and I immediately got a poster of his work– a painting of a zillion paintings in it. I guess I love clutter?
I’m also a fan of the opposite– I like Miro a lot, especially the ones with the long squiggly lines and bright bold colors. Generally I prefer whimsical and cheery modern/post-modern art to darker emotions.
Really there’s not much art I dislike except the stuff that is obviously misogynistic/racist or smells bad. There’s a lot of truly modern art that is just meh (I like to joke that if I don’t understand something, it must be art), but it hasn’t stood the test of time. I really loved the art history class I took in high school.
Grumpy Nation, what art do you like?
