Perhaps you too will be amused by this rant:



Be aware that "Prager 'University'" is just a right-wing YT channel. And that the speaker produces this kind of art:

:lmao: Hope we don't have to get back to that! :shock:

Sorry for the double post (corrected). The site slowed down, then got unresponsive about 9 hours ago, and I thought I hadn't effectively clicked:

Well, "street art" (let's generously call it that) is even more repetitive and conformist than manga or fan-art. Never seen an interesting thought proclaimed (I specially look for political stuff, hopeless).
But it can sometimes be amusing:

Baroque Putti. Limewood? Traces of gesso all over it. It was probably part of a church decoration, maybe an annunciation or something similar. Italian? late 17th c.? Maybe thru mid 18th? About 24" overall

I like these putti, especially the smug second one, clearly up to nothing good! :mrgreen:

Which reminded me of digital drawings I made (from crappy photos) and had completely forgotten.

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

Manchester Art Gallery wrote:Presenting the female body: Challenging a Victorian fantasy

Following a fantastic response to its seven day absence – both at the gallery itself and on-line – Waterhouse’s masterpiece Hylas and the Nymphs returned to public display at Manchester Art Gallery over the weekend.

The painting – part of the gallery’s highly prized collection of Pre-Raphaelite works – was temporarily removed from display as part of a project the gallery is working on with the artist Sonia Boyce, in the build-up to a solo exhibition of her work at the gallery opening on 23 March 2018. Boyce’s work is all about bringing people together in different situations to see what happens. The painting’s short term removal from public view was the result of a ‘take-over’ of some of the gallery’s public spaces by a wide range of gallery users and artists on Friday January 26th.

The event was conceived by Boyce to bring different meanings and interpretations of paintings from the gallery’s collection into focus, and into life. The evening included a series of performances, all filmed by Boyce’s team, addressing issues of race, gender, and sexuality, culminating in the careful, temporary removal of the Waterhouse painting. In its place, notices were put up inviting responses to this action that would inform how the painting would be shown and contextualized when it was rehung. In the course of this last week the space where the painting was has become filled with post-it notes from individuals wanting to contribute to the discussion.

Hylas was chosen because the painting has been a barometer of public taste since it was painted in 1896 and continues to be so.

Since its removal, the painting and its temporary absence from the gallery has captured the attention of thousands of people not just in Manchester but everywhere, and in so doing has opened up a wider global debate about representation in art and how works of art are interpreted and displayed.

At the link you'll see them getting an enormous amount of flak (what they call "capturing the attention"), which makes for an interesting read, IMO.
