ART IS NOT MEANT FOR DECORATION!




An artwork is not always about a beautiful subject. Artists usually create works about their surroundings and situations which touch them deeply. The Museum of Modern Art in New York will have this year a show about Manet’ s paintings of the execution of Maximilian, the emperor of Mexico who was a puppet of Napoleon III. Therefore art is not supposed to match the color scheme of a room or a couch. Many art lovers pile their precious possessions one in the top of the other without any concern for the surroundings. Art is not supposed to be only sweet.
