After two weeks of political conventions and energized social media, I thought it might be time for a poll that offers choices a little less contentious and fraught with polarization. This week we want to talk about art. Who are your favorite artists? Do you appreciate the grand old masters like Da Vinci or Michelangelo? Wouldn't you just love to see the Mona Lisa smile in real life? Or perhaps you find Van Gogh's tormented life and gorgeous transcendent paintings the most inspiring?
I am transfixed by some of the more contemporary artists. Wyeth's haunting lady on the hill is moody and overpowering. David Hockney's Southern California swimming pools and Mulholland Drive are sublime bursts of color and light.
Art appreciation is highly subjective, so if we've left out your favorites from the list below, please write it in as a comment. And if you've visited any of these masterpieces in person, tell us about that experience, too!
