I'm just blogging this cause your postings are too one sided as no one here is concerned with art that is not about buildings. Post this on a art forum buddy.
a. Andy Warhol painted quite well before he became known for what he's known for today. He was in-fact one of the most successful illustrators in the late 50's. He was for sure not "horrid".
b. What's wrong with a screen print?
c. Pollack was trained by Thomas Benton, the one who painted persephone at the top of this page. If you knew anything about Pollack you'd know that he didn't "drip" his whole life. He's an excellent painter, and knows a whole lot more about space, composition, and color than someone like egon schiele. (no beef against schiele)
d. Singer Sargent, Duchamp, Egon Schiele, AND Toulouse Lautrec all happen to be modern painters.
I happen to care little about buildings, and believe that caring about buildings has absolutely nothing to do with how one feels about all art. Your post is the most pretentious and one-sided in this thread. You contradicted yourself a good four times, and i suggest you do research before you tell innocent people having a good time talking about art the wrong information, "buddy".
