Yes, today I am here to talk about the Importance of Being Earnest Art. Not “Art” as in short-for-Arthur, but art as in painting-a-picture art.
Apparently, what is now considered art is what is drawn by 4 year olds. Or at least, the viewers, and even artists themselves cannot tell the difference between “art” (a.k.a. the stuff in the museums), and what a four year olds have been drawing for fun.
Go here to see what I am rambling on about. And you should click on the related link: “Is it Art or Not?”
It makes one think, it really does (well, about more things than the money you could get selling what your four year old draws). The reason it is in the museums is because the people “in charge” see life in it… I wonder whether they have ever looked at a painting by a child? Hmmmm.
I think, though, that what a young child paints or draws is so much more beautiful than what is in the museums. A child tries so hard to get a perfect piece of art… you can see the work and effort they put into it, and how pleased they are with the results. Sure, it may not be Da Vinci, but it’s their masterpiece, their work of art.
And now I have to leave thee. Sorry for all the mistakes that I am sure I made. I’m really tired. (I almost spelled tries trys.)
[The Deputy Headmistress adds: by 'art in museums' The Pipsqueak means modern, abstract art. This will be obvious to those who click on the links, which we highly suggest you do. Great fun]
