About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

      Thank you very much! I have little Greek art up here as of yet although I love that. I went to the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art recently again and I was really disappointed by the Greek art selection they have. It is nice at least that so much art is online. I haven’t written much commentary on the art because of time reasons. Although I am not a trained art historian or critic at all, I do love art history.When I was young at university, I walked into the stacks (what we call the rows and rows of books) in the art library and was in heaven. Soon I will put up a blog of the “Best of 2015.” Thank you for following this blog.

        Your very welcome. Thank you for putting so much effort into your blog. I’m very fortunate to have been to Athens and various other places in Greece and Cyprus, and have seen many beautiful and famous pieces. I’m not an expert myself either, just find it all fascinating. Thank you again for the update and for reminding me of one of my passions in life.
