    Nah - these "Modernists" like Van Gogh and Chagal all lead to those sickos like Picasso, Kandinsky ect.

    Alphonse Maria Mucha:

    These are my primary favorites, but there are many others. I'm a fan of impressionism, obviously, and Art Nouveau. I also adore maritime painters, renaissance and some ultra-modern. Art, for me, has always been something I felt and experienced rather than something I viewed.

    Wehrmacht, you are not alone in your distaste for the impressionists and modernists. Many feel as you do, but art is a very personal experience. Van Gogh's genius, in my humble opinion, was not in his accuracy as defined by mirror images and perfect spheres, but in his mind's eye. We get to see the world as he does - a little dark, a little distorted, and a little chaotic at times, but always striking. Sometimes that striking blur results in disgust, as in your case. Sometimes, it results in the viewer's ability to see the world a little differently.

    Art is for the artist to define for himself. The best artist always creates for himself with his personal vision as his only guide. The worst art is always created with commercial value and mass-appeal in mind, except in the case of Alphonse Mucha, perhaps. His art was, in fact, created as mass advertising, but he managed to make it enchanting to even the most hardened art snob. No small feat.
