My girls missed one of their art classes, and their cool art teacher gave me the paper and electric tape for us to do their Mondrian art at home. She wants to have these paintings for her second art exhibit. That was perfect, because I LOVE doing this sort of thing at home!
At the Museo del Prado, this past January, my husband and I were elated to be able to be immersed in a room with almost real size portraits of Russian monarchy. We had the pleasure to see The Hermitage Exhibition. In addition, most of this museum is devoted to classic art, we have other museums where the modern and contemporary artists are presented to the public. I understand many defend classic art to be the first and foremost placed in front of children eyes for their appreciation, but I simply find a place for more contemporary and less 'obvious' art in me and my girls. With something as wonderful as art in all its times, forms, and expressions... how do you all do to decide what artists to portray and what art to delve in? Do you stick more to classic or realistic art? Or do you explore any abstract, cubist, or even conceptual art at all?
Reina Sofía, in Madrid. Many years ago I could visit a fascinating exhibition about surrealism, with a replica of a room such as the way several artists had it in the early twentieth century. I confess that when it comes to art, I can´t choose between old or older, and new or contemporary, as with food taste, my spectrum is very wide, I jump to all there is out there to be tried and tasted!
