art history 101

Friday, January 20, 2012

I really do believe that interiors can be extension of you but also your tastes and studies of the arts. In and of themselves as specimens of decorative arts, obviously, but also as a showplace for the accomplishments of civilization. Or at least that's what I think about when I'm shampooing my hair... Anyways, I found this lovely interactive timeline, replete with articles and discussions, from the Met. As a form of Art History 101, it could save someone a couple semesters of tuition! Have a great weekend!

Probably takes me a lot less time to shampoo my hair, haha, but I'm generally thinking about what to wear today and what I need to bring to work. And inevitably I forget 1/2 of it anyway! Great article!

Ha! That's what I think about when I'm brushing my teeth ;)
