Abstract Art

“Nature is simply kitsch, and a guy painting it makes me nauseous.”

In front of a painting reminiscent of works by Bauhaus master Wassily Kandinsky (1866–1944) or surrealist Joan Miró (1893–1983), an art lover is outraged by the “kitsch” nature of Naturalism and Impressionism.

The Art Enthusiast

“This ‘reclining female nude’ would be something for our bedroom.’ ‘No, Emil. I cannot tolerate any unfair competition for me.’”

A painting of a naked woman causes disagreement between a well-to-do couple visiting a gallery.
