    The Mona Lisa

    From the painting-technic view, it's very high quality. Exquisite, to be honest. But it's rather dull, and especially since the invention of photography, this picture lost it's exquisitiviness. I mean, nowadays anyone can take pictures of anyone. There's no longer such a need for high quality portraits as there used to be.

    Starry Night

    If I wouldn't know better, I'd say this was drawn by a kid. Not much appreciation by me.

    Gleaners

    I like this one the most, since it has some historical value. It shows what the life used to be back then...

    Water Liles

    Don't like. It looks dirty and messy.

    Guernica

    Yeah... makes me think: "Maan, whateva ya smokin', pass it on me man!"

    I wouldn't feel very comfortable with this in my room. It hurts my mind.

    Onement 1

    I wouldn't call this art. It might be used for research on what's art, but it's no art by itself.

    This is no "art"-art. It's just art for some commercial usage.

    Do you prefer more "useful" art (simple paintings used for decoration), or do you prefer art that has meaning in it, even if you don't understand it?

    Well.. if I'd take some art here... it would likely be black-n-white photographs of some important events or places. Actually I have photograph of an mushroom cloud as my desktop picture. I think it looks pretty neat. But whatever I choose, I choose for visual reasons only. I don't care who made the art or if it has any value.

    Do you like to learn the meanings behind art?

    No. They are meaningless to me.

    Do you think you "get" art?

    No. I do get the visual aspects of it of course. I can tell which painting is well painted and which one isn't. But I don't get the art-part of it at all. But I do understand if someone else gets it. I would never call an art I don't like as garpage.

    What do you think of art such as that of Picasso or Andy Warhol, with less realism and more meaning behind the face value?

    I think Picasso was channeling his insanity through works. And perhaps Warhol too. I don't like their art to begin with, but it doesn't bother me at all that someone else is liking it.

    Do you enjoy going to museums?

    Depends very much on the type of a museum. I'd love to visit British Museum. I think I'm most interested in ancient history and devices and technologies used back then. I'm not so interested in art and people of the era.

    What do you think of people who go to museums?

    Well, as long as they understand that you can be cultured without going to museums, then I'm fine with them.

    What do you think of artists?

    That their way of life is rather understood by the general population and that their jobs are rather poor ones, especially money-wise. It's rather difficult to make your living as an artist.

    i just want to throw out there that my mom is an ESFJ and she and i, as far as i know, seem to have quite similar art appreciation. we both appreciate scenic beauty, art that makes you "feel good", realism that is portrayed positively/beautifully, non-abstract artwork that has a lot of meaning or history behind it.

    i should ask her what her more specific opinions are though, i'm curious now. should be back with that

    SO. OVERRATED. like $72 billion overrated. i'd say that i would give him $10 for that pink/orange/white one, but really i could just paint a good facsimile myself.

    The Mona Lisa
    I can really take this one or leave it... I can appreciate it because for someone like me portraits are impossible, so the details in this are impressive to me.

    Starry Night
    This has always reminded me of a Dr. Seuss book... So it makes me think of my childhood.

    Gleaners
    This one makes me think how advanced everything is now and makes me think of the simpler times...

    Water Liles
    I like the colors in this one, but the style isnt' my favorite.

    Guernica
    This one has too much going on in it and I don't care much for it. Never been a huge fan of abstract type art anyway.

    Onement 1
    I could have painted this... Too boring. The only thing it would be good for is art decor to break up some color in a room.

    Campbell's Soup Can (Tomato)
    Eh, whatever, I guess anything can be inspiration to someone.


    Do you prefer more "useful" art (simple paintings used for decoration), or do you prefer art that has meaning in it, even if you don't understand it?
    I prefer stuff with meaning, but that doesn't mean that "useful" art doesn't have meaning to those that buy it....or make it.

    Do you like to learn the meanings behind art?
    Only if the piece really caught my attention.

    Do you think you "get" art?
    Some art I do, some I don't. I've seen some stuff that people I know created while under the influence of drugs, and I'm fairly certain I'll never get it.

    What do you think of art such as that of Picasso or Andy Warhol, with less realism and more meaning behind the face value?
    To each their own. Every artist has their own vision.

    Do you enjoy going to museums?
    Absolutely.

    What do you think of people who go to museums?
    I think they are curious people who want to expand their horizons and learn more.

    What do you think of artists?
    I think they are great, as long as they can also keep their feet on the ground, too! I know some are a bit out there!

    Questions:

    Do you prefer more "useful" art (simple paintings used for decoration), or do you prefer art that has meaning in it, even if you don't understand it?
    I would say I "understand" more useful art. But I enjoy going to museums with a lot of more abstract art that I do not understand. I will readily follow a museum guide so that he/she can provide the context/meaning behind art.

    [B]Do you like to learn the meanings behind art?[/B]
    Absolutely.

    Do you think you "get" art?
    Usually not. I usually like to read the placard next to the art, or else read reviews/articles about the specific art pieces or the exhibit as a whole. Or else I would like to find a guide in the museum to show me around.


    What do you think of art such as that of Picasso or Andy Warhol, with less realism and more meaning behind the face value?
    N/A

    Do you enjoy going to museums?
    Absolutely.

    What do you think of people who go to museums?
    They like to see things that they can generally not find out in "the real world".

    What do you think of artists?
    I wish I could live such a bohemian lifestyle!
