17. Nope, not really.
I love learning languages... took 5 years of French before college, and 3 years of German in college, plus 9 months living there. Speaking French is really hard now after learning German, but I can still read a decent amount of it. Not fluent, by any means, but passable.

I know, I'm weird :)

3. Monet since he's the only one I ever heard of
Sorry Long, i appreciate good art but elementary school art class was strictly a social hour for me :).

8. Don't feel bad, I know nothing about Music
(except maybe Bob Dylan ;-) ) So anytime anyone starts one of these "What your favorite U2 song from 1986" Threads I always feel so left out, cause i know nothing about what they're talking about. :shrug:

But I guess we all have our areas of expertise...mine is in the visual arts. :)

13. I wasn't talking about you when I said that.
I was talking about the 1000 music threads that seem to spring up around the Lounge every night...Most of these groups I've never even heard of.

P.S. I'm good at writing too.

16. John, John, John...
Get yourself on the Metro and hop over to Smithsonian Station.
Check out the East and West Wings of the National Gallery, the Hirschhorn (that's the round one...don't miss their sculpture garden either), the Freer, and the Renwick.

Bop over to the Corcoran, the Phillips, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts while you're at it. Those that aren't free do not charge much, and they have student prices for guys like you.

They're practically in your backyard...

An art gallery is a great place for a date, too! :-)

18. I Voted Monet,
but wouldn't Seurat and Cezanne be viable options?

21. I forgot Seurat! Gulp!
Pointalism was always had to classify.

And I did mention Cezanne in my "Post-Impressionist" thread earlier today... :hi:

22. Manet...
...interesting compositions and his compressed picture plane make him the most important of the early modernists.

24. Let's not forget Manet was the one who started it all!
With his famous "Luncheon on the Grass"

Without it, there would be no Modern (or Post Modern (or whatever it is today)) Art.

25. His painting "Olympia"...
...stired things up a bit. The fact that the model's eyes looked out of the painting and confronted the viewer upset a few people.
