Have a Great Memorial Day

If you have the opportunity to do so, thank a veteran for their service because it is through the efforts of our men and women in the military that we can create art without prohibition.

Look back to a few examples of how creative efforts have been suppressed:

  •  Nazi Germany and the Degenrate Art show–included artists such as Kanidnsky, Paul Klee, and many others
  • The closure of the Bauhaus
  • Glance at the post about North Korean art to see what happens when art is purely in the service of the state
  • The art of Stalinist Russia
  •   ”       ”     ”   Communist China
  • and so forth….

Where creative efforts are suppressed the human spirit withers.

    Paul Klee has inspired many painters, including myself. As suche he deserves a great thank you.

    I agree. Klee as well as many artists during that period contributed immeasurably to subsequent generations of artists.

    Thank you for visiting and commenting! 🙂
