How is it that so many Adams were/are the pinnacle of their craft?

Ansel - photography
Scott - office humor
Don - TV sitcom
Samuel - Statesman, brewmeister
Walter - Astronomer
Douglas - humorist, writer

Kinda freaky, eh??

You could almost say they were the first men in their crafts.

There's some really great perspective work in all those examples, Szuchow.

That's another thing that irritates me about the rise of Christianity. Not only was scientific knowledge lost but perspective knowledge and the ability to render the human face in art work, which the Romans were starting to figure out, also was lost along with the ability to sculpt the human body.

It went from this, a fresco from Pompeii with the beginnings of some nice modeling of the face.

To this piece of shit fresco from the 11th century. I mean, what the hell people? Geesh!

Anyway, artist's perspective finally returned after more than 1000 years.

Well, the second picture has certain appeal Wink Kinda like works of Munch, though I suppose he was not going for realism in his paintings.

Mmmmmmm. I love his work too. I love that it's black and white. Color would have ruined it.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

And from what I understand, he got the unusual sharpness of his works by exposing them "hot", which I take to mean letting them sit a little longer than they should in the bath.

I agree. The lack of color really brings out the details in each of the pieces, so you focus more on the shapes and edges instead of missing it through the use of color.

I've always liked Edward Hopper. His subjects are so American. So many words unsaid are in his paintings. They're just wonderful.
