The sad thing about Picasso is, if you look at the sketches he did in his youth, you can see he could have become a talented traditional artist.

Instead he rode the wave of modernism.

Modern Art is a giant scam. It allows try hard wanna be intellectuals to amsturbate over their own cleverness while pointing that finger at any Pleb who has the gall to point out that the Emperor has no clothes.

Another sign of the collapse of Western Culture

Technically they are fine, but the theme is rather grotesque in way not too dissimilar from Picasso and other modern painters. Too grim and dark for my taste.

A question for those with more knowledge of painting: what country could be seen as "best" when it comes to painting? Who perfected the art of oil painting as we discuss here?

Personally I would say that Italians have perfected sculpture and they are definitely a strong contender for painting as well, in my opinion.

Well, I personally like his work, because it's both surrealist and modern, and doesn't look like some scribbles like most modern art. Kind of shows what modern art could be if artists actually put some effort into their work instead of just circlejerking.

Zaporozhian Cossacks to the Turkish Sultan!

O sultan, Turkish devil and damned devil's kith and kin, secretary to Lucifer himself. What the devil kind of knight are you, that can't slay a hedgehog with your naked arse? The devil excretes, and your army eats. You will not, you son of a bitch, make subjects of Christian sons; we've no fear of your army, by land and by sea we will battle with thee, fuck your mother.

You Babylonian scullion, Macedonian wheelwright, brewer of Jerusalem, goat-fucker of Alexandria, swineherd of Greater and Lesser Egypt, pig of Armenia, Podolian thief, catamite of Tartary, hangman of Kamyanets, and fool of all the world and underworld, an idiot before God, grandson of the Serpent, and the crick in our dick. Pig's snout, mare's arse, slaughterhouse cur, unchristened brow, screw your own mother!

So the Zaporozhians declare, you lowlife. You won't even be herding pigs for the Christians. Now we'll conclude, for we don't know the date and don't own a calendar; the moon's in the sky, the year with the Lord, the day's the same over here as it is over there; for this kiss our arse!

Koshovyi Otaman Ivan Sirko, with the whole Zaporozhian Host.

Im a big biased towards the French I have to admit. Like you say though many countries had a wealth of incredible literature. Ancient Greece is particularly astonishing just given the quantity of it from so long ago, and it's continued relevance. Homer and the later playwrights, particularly Sophocles, are world's ahead of anything else from that time

Art school is typically to teach the various techniques, classically pen and ink or paint on canvass sort of thing no? What you do with that is up to you.

All art is political, maybe you should enroll in polisci?

I love how it shows the modern degeneracy. Small russain village school is on this picture, kids 11-15 years of age are solving this task with no pens and paper, just in mind. It shows how schools used to teach TO THINK, and not to pass fucking tests. I like that boy that scratches his head, his branis are fucking grinding so hard that his eyes glow. That picture gives me many feels. Amazing shit.

Whilst the art of ancient Egypt was very simplistic, in technique, it is quite beautiful.

For those interested in art and how it has changed throughout history and in different cultures I could actually recommend reading "Decline of the West" by Oswald Spengler.
It is quite heavy reading and not entirely focused on art, but large parts of it are dedicated to comparing art from different periods in different cultures and see similarities/differences.
One example is how depth and infinity are concepts that have defined the modern, western civilization. In paintings this is quite easy to see when the main object often isn't what you can see or what is happening.

This specific painting is a good example. The man in the foreground is in many ways just a person representing the observer: you.
The main objective is the wast landscape of fog and mountains. Then there's the horizon and the sky. Truly infinite in it's way.

According to Spengler there is nothing that awakens such longing in western men as looking for the horizon. Yearning for infinity is what defines our entire civilization and has done so for almost a thousand years now.
>>
>>34851648
good question. It is 0:30 so I am a little tired.

I try to explain myself.
Yes the material is cold but that just intesivies the bases feeling. Which is depressing (especially the snadclockdude). And one of the major problems of modern art ist that it is almost allways showing in my opinion how very depressing the world is.
I don't need art to do that for me. I know the world is a total fubar place all for itself.

So I see the skill of the artist but I dislike his message.

I know.

In a way that is just a more degenerate form of "the hunt for infinity". Becoming a social superstar is essentially a form of immortality, infinite life.

But all civilizations have their end. Ours is about to enter the last part of a cycle that takes about 1000 years.
Compared to the ancient "classical" Greco-Roman civilization we are somewhere before the fall of the Republic now. A time of corruption and decay of the ancient values. Disorder will grow until we see the rise of Caesarism and centuries of warfare where people follow charismatic leaders in a hope that someone can bring order to society.
This won't happen as no man can save something from death, and a collection of individuals like a civilization is a very living thing.

I'm not quite sure I follow. I would just like to point out that the survival of Rome as an political entity means that "Rome" wasn't dead.

I would compare this with China. China has been conquered by enemies from the outside a few times in history. However this didn't mean an end to China. The nomads who conquered them became the new upper-class and essentially was absorbed by their new country. China was culturally powerful enough that they could endure military defeat.
Rome was similar in many ways that the barbarians weren't always interested in just destroying Rome. They wanted to BE Romans, the highest standing of all empires in the world.
The west has never really conquered China in it's entirety through military force. We killed China's ancient culture and traditions that in different ways had lasted for millenniums. Through the ideas of liberalism and later marxism we destroyed the ancient empire and created a communistic society in a part of the world that never would have been able to come with the concept on its own.
