What an idiotic statement.
“What an idiotic statement.”
Exactly. Is it “sad” that Da Vinci, Raphael, Valasquez, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Goya, etc. posed people for their paintings? Heck no.
All the time I was in college, Norman Rockwell was ridiculed by professors for portraying a false image of life in the United States.
I stopped them in their tracks by suggesting that Rockwell’s paintings portrayed a goal to be striven for.
Norman Rockwell is my all-time favorite artist. His paintings make me reach for the Kleenex.
