    • Thanks Luciana, it’s so good to have you back ;) I’m not a hardcore Simpsons fan myself, you one can’t deny the impact that they’ve had on our culture. The fact that they’ve been successfully in air for so many years is a testament to its importance. I thought this post would be a good way to introduce some works of art in a modern context.

      • You’re absolutely right: The Simpsons had a impact on our culture (by the way, some Brazilians hate them because of a particular episode related to Brazil…lol) and this is really a nice way to introduce people to some works of art in a modern way.
        Regarding works of art, a few years ago, a popular Brazilian cartoonist made versions of famous paintings made ​​using his own characters. He wanted to introduce children to the world of art. Too bad he is not known worldwide.

  2. Glad you enjoyed it! It really makes art more understandable to kids… While I was growing up, as I lived in a very small city, I never had the oppotunity to visit museums, but as I was very curious about art in general, I always read about it. I was a real joy when I finally could visit one and see a famous painting… Right now in my last vacation, I had an overdose of art…Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Vermeer, da Vinci, Michelangelo (among others) so happy about it!!!

    • I know what you mean. There’s something amazing about laying your eyes on a painting you’ve seen reproduced many times. Some turned out to be more wonderful than I could’ve ever imagined (like Monet), others were a bit of a let down ( like the Mona Lisa, viewed over the heads of a dozen Japanese tourists). Was there anything that WOW’ed you?

      • The first time I saw one of Monet’s paintings I cried (silly, but true). This time, Monet’s Nymphéas – 8 murals in the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris almost made me cry… always Monet… By the way, I’m watching ‘The Impressionist’… this is not a coincidence… ;-)

        • I loved The Impressionists and I’m really surprised that people don’t like it. I think RA looks charming as the lanky Monet. Regarding the wig and goatee- I’ve seen him in worse (I try not to think about John Porter in the throws of his depression, that is such a horrid look).

          • I’m really enjoying it! In spite of RA appearance, he is doing a good job as usual!!

          • I liked the format of the film, the way it presented both the artists and their work. I cried a bit when characters would die (hope I’m not spoiling anything, but by now all of them are dead, so I’m not giving that much away LOL). A really beautiful film, RA is just the cherry on the cake :)
