Art Blog: The Best of Modern Art, 1800-Present
"Most of what has been outstanding art in the past hundred years has been disparaged by modern artists as 'mere illustration.' We find that term to be insulting, and more often than not, a snide attack from posers who cannot produce quality work. Let us be clear, we have no issue with pushing the boundaries of art, whether it be composition, medium, or otherwise. But for us at least, art must still fulfill its aesthetic role. In short, it must be beautiful, inspiring, sublime...or at least something that doesn’t look like vomit on canvas."
Says it all, doesn't it? :) Today's entries also include works by Jacek Yerka, Arnold Bocklin, Carlos Schwabe, Ray Caesar, and Luis Royo. Art Blog's past archives make me want to spend all day there, with more than a few works I've never seen, and will probably research later on my own. I'll definitely be visiting this place often.
