Oh, that's good. Tiny nitpick, it could be argued that the fauvism example is perhaps more late Matisse.

I love it.

I think this poster should be MANDATORY for teaching Children in Kindergarten ALL about Modern Art.

Heck, Modern Art Class it should be in the Highschool Curriculum and then have the kiddies compare/contrast their efforts with those of the greats in their fields.

My mother made me watch some ballet once on PBS. Turned out to be interpretive dance. The only bright spot was that the well sculptured female wore tight bottoms only. The enjoyment this young adolescent got was watching the bare boobs.

"The only bright spot was that the well sculptured female wore tight bottoms only."

Here's some more ballet for ya, Snakepit (through the eyes of an artist, mostly). Though there is no nudity, it is nice to watch.

I do not understand how the feminine form - in its myriad forms can attract our attentions as it does, but it does.

I love it.

And the Fauvist one depicts the subversion of form, Chuck.

So, this is a cartoon about art, right? And there's a lot of name dropping, this artist, that school of art, all elicited by the cartoon, right?

I guess if we have computers that read books to us and give us street views and allow us to have several thousand "friends" then we can learn a lot from cartoons.
Maybe there's one for scientific topics, and one for literature, poetry, music.
I must admit, cartoons are easier to read than books, as long as polysyllabic words are avoided.
