Art History Memes For The Highly Cultured Among Us
It was the legendary musical group, The O'Jay's who said "Monet Monet Monet Monet Monet, some people got to have it. Some people really need it."
Why is it that no one thinks the layman can appreciate fine art? We can totally sit through a big long boring art exhibition full of paintings commissioned by Dukes and Lords and all that junk. We can even walk around a gallery, totally stifling our urge to touch the paintings and go "I thought it wasn't completely flat. That must be the brushstrokes." We can absolutely appreciate how light interplays with scenery and we very much relate to any artist who was completely unappreciated in their life only to die penniless and insane. We like art.
Also if you see any art with Cheeto dust fingerprints on it, that wasn't us. That was a different guy. Real handsome though. Loves art a whole lot.
