  1. This is going to be embarassing but I still don’t get Picasso’s cubism. I don’t see what’s so artistic about it😛

    On the other hand, I love the impressionist and surrealist movement – I chose impressionism as the movement that I focused on during high school Art class😀

  2. Me neither Ther. Don’t be ashamed about it. I don’t get Mark Rothko’s either, is it graphic work or a painting?

    Hey, how interesting! You know much about Impressionism I suppose. We have something to discuss about when we meet off line, some day.

  3. how could the last pict be the one of the most expensive painting :” I dont see the meaning of it :”
    could you explain me lorraine?

Tell me what you think
