I remember we had a "art" topic floating around somewhere, but this forum can't be searched with the term "art". (The search could not be completed because the search keywords were too short, too long, or too common) So I thought of making a new one, this time especially focusing on visual art. Let's not set strict rules, but I was more thinking of older, classical forms such as paintings / sculptures / architecture and such, rather than a DVD or a movie or something. ;-) So, feel free to post your favourite names, pieces, buildings, anything you feel like. Own art is possible too, of course, and naturally you can also refer to latest discoveries / creations. Let me start by saying I am not a huge art buff (as much as I am into other forms as films and music). I don't spend every week in a museum, but if I do not mind visiting one either once in a while. I guess I am mostly into paintings, preferably landscapes, but I can also admire some famous painters who did more than that. Also, my wife and I like to visit old city centres and castles and such. Often, if there is any, we have to see city gates, walls, churches, or any other kind of building of interest from medieval times or older. It's something more than the pure visual quality ("look, how nice"). These remnants of the past give us a larger interpretation of happenings in the past, or at least, they make us more curious. It's a special feeling to be there. Just as staring at something in a museum feels more special than looking at it on internet or in a book. In later posts I'll come up with some images and I am looking forward to your contributions a lot. Thanks in advance!
