Welcome

Welcome to this blog, which is primarily devoted to art: short analyses or reflections on works which will include a range of genres and periods from German Expressionism, Symbolism, Pre-Raphaelites, Post-Modernism, Fauvism, Saatchi artists, Romanticism, Medieval, Classical, Austrian art, Dutch Golden Age, and whatever else. Some movements I know better than others and I am using this blog to further explore individual works and movements.
