• How does someone get their artwork put up in a restaurant?

    I saw a painting put up in a local restaurant I don't think is anything great. Do you think it was put up because someone at the restaurant knows her? I've seen many painting much better than this one.

I personally am not a fan or van goghs starry night, that does not make the painting any less famous or world renowned. i can say that an art piece is amazing and that the artist was talented but that doesn't mean i like it or want the piece for myself.

  • Why did Frida Kahlo think her father's family was Jewish?

    Kahlo always insisted her father was a German Jew. However in 2005 it was discovered that her father was actually from a Lutheran family. So what made her think she was Jewish?

  • Did the masters like da Vinci paint with an air gun blowing paint through a tube?

    Best answer: No, airbrushes only appear from the late 19th century and used mainly with water color. The sort of ones you blow using breath tend to look as though they have been sprayed. One of DV's favorite techniques was sfumato and that is fog like shading by shading with a soft brush.

  • What do you think about Thomas Kinkade paintings in general?

    Best answer: Technically nice but I personally think they have a bit of a "Disney backdrop" feel to them...great for doctor office waiting rooms and the lobbies of restaurants with words like "wagon" or "inn" in their names.

  • Does anyone remember when the Mona Lisa was NOT outright smiling and we all used to debate over whether or not she was smiling?

    I swear, something's been going on and it's freaking me the **** out. The Mona Lisa's entire appeal was the mysterious expression on her face. People would stand and stare at her face, or look at it from different angles until they saw the smile. THAT'S why she was so iconic... but now she's... show more
    I swear, something's been going on and it's freaking me the **** out. The Mona Lisa's entire appeal was the mysterious expression on her face. People would stand and stare at her face, or look at it from different angles until they saw the smile. THAT'S why she was so iconic... but now she's JUST. SMILING?! What's up with that, and why are people forgetting? Why has the painting changed? I know of people who studied art in college who were fascinated with the painting and have the same memories as me. There was even an episode of The Simpsons where Lisa mimicked the painting with a neutral facial expression with only a HINT of a smile at the corner of her mouth. It's driving me crazy...

  • Why does Picasso's work sell for thousands/millions, but when I throw paint on a canvas my art teacher fails me?

    Best answer: Take no notice of what your teacher says. I very much doubt that Picasso took any notice of his art teachers. A piece of art is worth what it is worth, meaning what anybody will pay for it when it is offered for sale, maybe decades or centuries after the death of the artist. I doubt that the early works of... show more
    Best answer: Take no notice of what your teacher says. I very much doubt that Picasso took any notice of his art teachers.

    A piece of art is worth what it is worth, meaning what anybody will pay for it when it is offered for sale, maybe decades or centuries after the death of the artist. I doubt that the early works of Picasso made him much money when he was a student, but you might care to research that notion.
