It’s time to wise up to academic art

July 31, 2014

It’s time to wise up to academic art  – here is a nice article about The Birth of Impressionism — Freedom in Painting: Masterpieces from the Musee d’Orsay at the National Art Center Tokyo.  As the museum’s web site states: “The exhibition attempts to give new life to the rich and diverse era from the late 1860s to early 1880s in which a broad spectrum of movements and talents coexisted alongside each other, and to free ourselves from the stereotype judgment of Impressionism being ‘good’ and academicism being ‘bad.’ ”
