    I love art and I love history. To love art in itself is enough to develop an almost automatic interest in art history because artists as a rule are interested in it.  Their vocabulary generally is composed by preceding generations.  They only add the pinch of salt...

    Passion Vs. Reality

    I'm an art history major and absolutely love it. The only problem, especially with men at my school, is that they do not see it as a serious major. One person even joked, "you are going to graduate with the word 'art' on your diploma!" Even though it's something I love, I'm not...

    60's Art

    I think the art history in the 60’s is quite interesting - like Andy Warhol. I also think there was a lot of art on the 60’s and 70’s record jackets as well as some of the fashion. Cheers!
