How to become an art connoisseur without getting up from the couchPictolic
Admit it honestly: at least once in your life you confused Manet and Monet, Bruegel could not distinguish from Bosch, and the authorship of paintings with expressive naked bodies and could not identify at all, only vaguely suspecting that it was someone from the Italians.
Well, it's time to put an end to the feeling of awkwardness once and for all and learn to distinguish at least the classics from each other. We offer you fun tips that will help you remember how not to confuse artists.
