I was doing some research for a project and found this in my internet travel http://www.museumofbadart.org/

an example of what you can find there...





We're so used to seeing things as we expect to, it's kinda nice to get a perspective that's a little off the wall- I think that helps to keep our minds open to possibilities that might otherwise go unrealized.

I discovered this little known Rembrandt masterpiece as a lithograph in a university library some 25 years ago. It is a portrait of a Mennonite woman from the early 1600's, and of all Rembrandts work, this one still astounds me to this day. In viewing it at its full intended size, it jumps out at you just like a 3D image, and boggles your senses. One trick Rembrandt used was to frame the picture within another picture. Although you cannot see it in this clipped .jpg, her left thumb overhangs the edge of the frame within the portrait, and appears to protrude into the real world, or "our space".

It was, and still is an astounding accomplishment in the art of oil painting. 400 years ago, and the great Dutch Masters still fry my senses. This particular painting is owned by Queen Elizabeth II, and is part of her royal collection.

I will not name the painting, as I am curious if anyone else on the forum is familiar with this particular Rembrandt portrait. Anybody? Anybody?

Actually, I'm not entirely sure, but I think that's actually supposed to be Donald Rumsfeld in a dress...?

Ding, ding, ding!!

We have a winner!

Also referred to as "Woman with a Fan" as a generic description.

No kewpie dolls today, but you will be placed in the zardoz "Hall of Fame" for art history sleuths.

I am impressed in the extreme.
