    I'm in an art history class now and more than ever I'm getting into art.

    My favorite artists are Monet and Klimt. My favorite period of probably Late Renaissance to Baroque. What about you guys?

    Huuurgh I hate art. Well, that's not true. I've studied art and art history for a good part of my life. I've been to artists talks, gallery openings, and more exhibitions than you can poke a stick at. The whole modern art world bothers me. Artists are generally snobs, up themselves and think that they are the greatest thing. I know that sounds like a stereotype but from all my experience visiting the countless talks, openings etc I've found it to be true. Studying art history is a wonderful and interesting thing though. I've always enjoyed art history, no matter where and when I studied it.
