    Much as I enjoy reading them, I enjoy writing them, too: probably more so.

    All shitty reproductions. I was fortunate to see some real ones in the Rijksmuseum a few years ago and I cried for about half an hour upon seeing them.

    I had a van Gogh do that to me once. It was so unlike most of his work I didn't recognize it as his. I stared overwhelmed by emotion for a good twenty minutes from a distance before I approached and read the little placard. Turns out he painted it during a brief period of peace and mental clarity while housed in an asylum.
    Art is powerful.

    I saw this one once too, and it made me scream.

    I think The Scream is still "missing"?

    When in Pasadena, everyone should visit the Norton Simon Museum (formerly, the Pasadena Museum of Art). It's hard to leave that place with any tears left. Plus, he collected some rather impressive lingams . . . if you're into that sort of thing. You can take a reading break and read all about it here: Norton Simon Museum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The standing joke is that Norton, who had an amazing acumen for remarkable art of the world, not just Western Civilization, bought the paintings and his wife of many years, Jennifer Jones, picked out the frames.

    There is one gallery that is an intentional joke where . . . well, you just have to see how the Manets and Monets are positioned between between Ingres on one side of the entrance and Bonnards on the other side.

    Munch actually painted several paintings that he called "The Scream," two of which were stolen, one in the 1990s and the other in 2004. Both were recovered.

    The bandits tried to make off with the Monet, but they couldn't make the Van Gogh.

    You say that, but I know how you like it. Take it like a man.

    In the meantime, I bet you'd like this.

    No not really (I took Nancy's advice and just said no) I'm more upset sometimes that I'm the voice almost everyone hears when they are not listening.
