Women Can Paint Very Well!

This post is a "tongue-in-cheek*" answer to the hilarious statement from Georg Baselitz, who quite recently stated that "Women can´t paint very well" . The article from theindependent.co.uk is quite interesting and makes you actually shake your head.

To be honest, even a Chuck Close and David Hockney have more artistic qualities compared to the stuff that Baselitz produces, in my humble-artistic-opinion.

In general, it often astounds me that these folks have the guts to even call that art.

I´d understand if no one ever would have seen a refined oil painting, but having a history of master artists doing that back in the 1500 century, makes me really angry that some of today´s artists try to sell their "sketches" and doing really well by labelling their work as art.

However, actually I don´t care, I´m in a different business, I just feel the urge to react on such statements with my personal opinion. Art is very subjective, but a statement such as the above, is a defamation that hasn´t to do anything with "being subjective", it isn´t even hilarious, it is plain dumb. A so-called-artist at the age of 75 should know better.

Following, you find some great artwork from women that I consider "art", very inspiring, refined and noteworthy works opposed to the "scrap" (pardon) that you have to see above.
