Art in Action

“What is beautiful to some people may appear to others to represent a problematic and pejorative system.”

This is, of course, just the first step. They’re testing the waters. I’d give it at least another five years before the “feminists” & their islamic brothers are ready to heap up the paintings of John William Waterhouse and burn them all, in their version of Savanarola’s bonfire of the vanities.

In the meantime, gaze upon the same artist’s Lady of Shalott, above, and marvel that such things were possible, once.
