That's the thing with Humanity. Diverse emotions.
>Stop liking what I dont like
Good, educated arguement. I'll stop, but only because I'm running out of images, not because you so boldy asked me to.
It's an image that has been posted before and will be posted again. It's not sexual and has cultural and art value, there is no way a board about history and humanities will disallow something like that.
Stop trying to be an asshole and grow up.
This is the one I am talking about.
>Finally, I shitposted enough to drive diversity, discussion and art away
Good job, faggot.
It does look pretty nice.
I'm probably reading into it too much, but she looks tired.
>No one has posted this yet
Swedish "Forest Finns" burning forest to make room for good farming land.
Boogeroux sure had a fascination with cute little girls, huh.
Allegorical paintings are hard to appreciate without context
How about some nice genre paintings instead?
These threads are one of the few good ones on /his/ i don't want it to die.
throwback to medieval iconography
There's a lot of garbage in this thread IMO.
I wish I had statues to post just to spite that one faggot
Marquis' porn etching must suffice
Marcus Valerius Messalla Corvinus' at least in the form of a funerary urn
"Marcus Valerius Messalla Corvinus (64 BC – 8 AD) was a Roman general, author and patron of literature and art."
Just heard of this guy today. Makes sculptures out of assorted plastic models.
I went to a contemporary art museum with a friend a couple weeks ago, this thread reminds me of it. I remember standing in one of the main exhibit rooms, dirty burlap sacks covering half of the floor and plastered on the corner walls up to the ceiling, mannequins wrapped in blood-red ribbons standing in a line in front of a wall with random words about war and death incomprehensibly scribbled in red ink, horrible screams bleeding in from one of the video exhibits upstairs. I remember standing there, and wondering, "what went so, so wrong?"
Futurism is one of the only modern art styles that I like.
It's a real shame that most of you can only bring yourselves to appreciate the beauty of oil painting from the 19th century. Even worse is that you probably think it is representative of all pre-modern art. For your own sake you should look at more works and do some research.
Some kind of actual engagement with art would suffice instead of just saving pictures off the internet. I don't want to 'enlighten' you because that just means people here will be copying my opinion and repeating it like they know what they're talking about, which is exactly what I'm against. Like I said, for your own sake you should look at more work and do the research. It's about demonstrating your own awareness of history and developing that, rather than agreeing with the first person you think knows what they're talking about.
The last time I visited the permanent collection of a particular art gallery I wandered through gallery to gallery of pure naturalism; the least impressionistic of impressionism, random nude women in woodland scenes, neoclassical nymph after hackneyed neoclassical nymph. Luckily there was a Turner exhibition visiting so there was something I liked; but to the point, at no time did I arrogantly confuse my personal taste for some grand objective ascent of the visual arts.
19th century is pre-modern? But I thought the modern mindset was set in that century. Are you trying to cheat me or are you trying to enlight (pun intended) me?
I would leave this life of mine for all them contents, as well as to serve a cause so great as the Lord and his Tsar....
In a society stripped of all adventure, the only adventure left is to destroy society.
Post proper filenames with artist and title, Jesus
Reasons why the humanities have fallen. Exibit (a

He's awesome. Saved a ton of his stuff but too lazy to dig it up. Reminds me a lot about the intro sequence to the HBO Black Sails Series, though that is later than most of his stuff. Maybe he worked in it, dont know. Both great anyway.
Awww dammit Image max reached...
Who posts a new thread?
I might be shooting myself in the foot right now. I believe that the humanities are the most important discipline [might not be the correct term]. However, all people I have meet who are studying humanities are a bunch of lazy arrogant assholes

^That is what I said to me a long time ago after wanting to study philosophy for fun.
