Who likes art?

I didn’t think I would.

I was dragged along to a few museums and it was actually pretty cool.

Every time now we go to major city we always try and put some time aside to see the great works of art that are on display in that city.

Isn’t there something special about see a great work of art right in front of you?

I have loved Dali since I was a kid... Finally made it not his museum about 10 years ago.. Amazing...

Love it. I plan a lot of my vacations around museums. Did my last trip to Belgium specific for Flemish primitives, one of the most underrated, underappreciated point in art history. The Italian Reconnaissance understandably gets the attention of the period, but this is where I think the true masterpieces are

Also did a vacation to hop around looking at Reubens' work. Dude was a true OGer and painted giant pictures with fat women. A personal favorite of mine.


William Blake is another favourite and I saw this last year in London.

Really looking forward to seeing the brilliant works of art in New York and Chicago in November.

I love art, especially abstract Impressionism.  So the tops for me are Dali and Robert Bentley.

I really love Matisse.


I got to hike into the hills above Collioure and see where he got his pastels.


Beautiful work. I especialy enjoy artists like Matisse that create the same work several times throughout their life, like his "sailor", and you can see how his visions evolved.


There was a show at the MET a few years back with all the MAtisse works side by side. Right after they did the same with Cezanne's portraits of his wife.


Pretty awesome.

What’s the score with New York? Will the museums be open by November?

I hope so if you are planning a visit.


I don't suspect though. I believe, and politics aside, that there is a second wave coming to NYC/NJ. I don't think it is avoidable. My personal opinion is that we won't see full reopenings until well into 2021.

I'm just a bear, so I don't often get to wander into museums without being escorted out. However I have to agree seeing famous works in person is totally different then seeing it in a.book or website.  Number of paintings I saw on other media werent impressive but when seeing them in person blew my bear mind. The coloring, depth, texture, etc. Are all lost if you dont see the art with your bare/bear eyes upclose

Still on my bucket list.

That would cripple the city? We booked through a travel agents so it’s covered it the 2nd wave hits.
