“Portrait Of Madame De Stael” by Marie-Eleonore Godefroid (she was French, 1778-1849). Not bad artwork, for a woman. The majority of female painters suck. I’ve seen lots of their work. There has only been one other woman, who I have seen, who I would call “an excellent painter” (i.e., Clara Peeters, circa 1625), but she […]

“Portrait of Nicolaes Ruts” (1631) by Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669). Early Rembrandt, like this one, is hard to beat. (His later works were dark and rather sloppy, due to his age, no doubt).

(Above: Two…egg-shaped…things, made by queer “artist” Ellsworth Kelly. Gee, what talent he had! How many years of intensive art training did it take for him to learn how to make two…egg-shaped…things? My dog made two egg-shaped things yesterday. Except they were brown…). Of course the postal service would choose modern “art” made by a homosexual, […]

(Above: a real sculpture: “Two Sisters” by Auguste Moreau, bronze, circa 1880). Genuine art is something that a non-artist could not create. But any machinist, foundry worker or metal fabricator could create that steel rabbit which sold for much more than any Rembrandt masterpiece (a “second-class” Rembrandt was on sale in 2004 for $46 million).

Custom knifemaking (as opposed to factory-made knives), which began to rise in popularity in the 1980s. It is almost exclusively a White/male art form. Some custom knives are “user” knives, while others are artsy wall-hangers/display queens. Some examples of custom knives: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. [Video about custom knifemaking, duration is 1 hour].
