Sorry, art historians…

You’ve all been replaced by a simplistic algorithmic protocol, which, as a side effect, has completely ruined van Eyck for me for all time.

    Funny, but how does he differentiate Bruegel form Lowry?

  2. 2

    If there’s a vaguely happy looking skull hovering somewhere it’s James Ensor.

    Pretty funny. Not enough to ruin van Eyck for me. He’s one of my favorites. What can I say, I love the hyper realism.

    You could say, if it looks like an incredibly realistic depiction of your last acid trip, it’s Bosch, but that wouldn’t differentiate him from Dali.

    Really “Putin” Van Eyck in his place, eh?

    My Dad’s an art historian and thought it was funny.

    If it causes nausea, loss of libido and death wish but you can’t look away it’s Giger.
    If it reminds you of giraffes or ostrichs it’s Modigliani.
    Human husbandry, it’s Botero.

    Putin looks pretty good in a green dress. Not too many megalomaniacs can pull it off the 14th century wedding dress like that.

    If everyone looks classical and manly, including the women, it’s Michelangelo.

    No no no!
    It has to be done as a question…
    For example:
    ‘If everything looks like it has been left out in the sun too long it’s ___________’

    I love Bosch, mostly because of all the crazy bullshit.

    I have no idea who Amerighi da Caravaggio was, but there was never a painter with that name.

    Michelangelo Merisi o Amerighi da Caravaggio ?

    Michelangelo Merisi, also known as Caravaggio from the name of the town he was born in.
