Art is in the eye of the beholder, right?

I’ve always enjoyed museums and galleries, whether it’s high renaissance, cubist, modern or impressionist. I don’t enjoy all art, but that’s exactly as it should be: in my opinion art is completely subjective, and I absolutely don’t expect that what I like you’ll like too, and vice versa. Having said that, there are some sublime pieces that I’ve had the pleasure to have seen, including the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican, and my favorite Da Vinci sculpture, The Slave.

What brings up this topic? My friend Joel has launched a new Web site called Land Of and I’ve been spending an hour or so browsing the wide range of prints offered on the site.

Just so you can see what caught my eye, here are a couple of my favorites:

Perseus and Andromeda (by Peter Paul Rubens)

Reclining Nude (Amadeo Modigliani)

Birds on a Beach (Ansel Adams)

Soviet Communist Propaganda Poster

Quite a range, I know. But that’s what I’ve been thinking about as I’ve explored Land of whatever you like, there’s always something you can hang on the wall to inspire, amuse or entertain yourself.
