Nut-case destroys a Monet

Learned today that some lunatic has destroyed a Monet masterpiece in Dublin.  The Irish Slimes tells us that "a man has been arrested after a Monet painting hanging in the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin was seriously damaged today. The 1874 work, entitled Argenteuil Basin With a Single Sailboat, was damaged between about 11am and 12 pm, a spokeswoman for the gallery confirmed."
.
And boy, did he damage it............beyond repair or recognition...the bastard. Looking at the painting it was clear that it now bore no resemblance to a sailboat of any kind, the Argenteuil Basin or indeed any other basin. Something like a not particularly gifted child might do with his first painting set. What must it have been like before the vandal cut loose on it,  I wondered? Googled the picture and, oh dear, the painting on the Slimes was the one before it was damaged.
.
Holy God!  Am I a philistine or what?

Laughed out loud at that one Sav. Mind you, you had me going for a while. I said 'oh no, he's not tyrning into a pseud, is he?'

Souldn't have worried!

Probably the next Hitler said...

Well, I think it's pretty.

Rob said...

So you're shocked at how bad Monet is.
You don't get out very often do you Savant?

SAVANT said...

Rob, my guess is that you and others would throw the painting in the bin if you found it at home. Then if someone explained that it was 'great art' you'd suddenly and inexplicably see how wonderful it is. Just like so-called wine experts. Switch the labels and they get completely screwed up.

PS, I presume then you're a great admirer of tracy Enem's 'art', like her soiled bed-clothes?

I guess this article sums up how you feel about Jackson Pollock's "art," then.

Off topic, but I'm feeling terribly homesick today, and want to share this video to prove that it's true that "you can't go home again":

I hope the frame wasn't damaged in the attack. I have only just discovered this blog, by the way. I think I'm going to like it here.

I think it would be a great painting if he just finished the job! It's promising. is this guy still around?

Rob said...

Savant - what I meant was, if you're shocked by how bad Monet is, you can't have been exposed to much of the "art" that's been produced in the last few decades - it would make Monet look like Leonardo.

The whole modern art racket seems to me to be a long drawn out pretense mutually agreed between all the people who have invested in it, financially or career-wise. None of them can afford to point out that the Emperor has no clothes, so on and on the grotesque charade goes, decade after decade.

Sorry, Savant, but you ARE a philistine (as in vulgar, ignorant boor - not the Old Testament or modern Palestinian kind...)if you seriously believe Monet to be anything less than one of the greatest artists of all time. How can you be a guardian of White Western culture when you don't even appreciate it? I do weep, forsooth.(Kanye West's latest album is in the mail to you, btw

I couldnt agree more with you Savant ,pps are brain washed by main sewage media and the`` art`` is what kikes tell us what it is.One of the most expensive work of```art`` is scrawls by Jackson Pollock who became a super star of modern``art`` just because he used to shag Peggy Guggenheim.She was a kike whore with plenty of money and she bought this talentless idiot just to degrade the art of White people.Guys check for instance this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/14/Birth_of_Venus_Botticelli.jpg This is the art of white people the art of beauty.................................... not this crap which was sold for 159.000.000 dollars http://www.ibay.li/image.php?id=5514&type=D

I think a little arrow pointing out the sailboat would also be helpful. I'll do it myself if they can't get anyone else.

Did he think it was an already defaced portrait of the dancing polygamist SA president?

katana said...

From a causal glance at Monet's painting he at least portrayed natural scenes that valued nature and people with no vulgarity on display.

This is in contrast to typical jewish created and jewish praised 'art'.

Jewish 'art' in all its perversity is a topic in the Nazi produced 1940 documentary 'the Eternal Jew' (Der ewige Jude). This documentary is well worth watching for its accurate, although somewhat soft portrayal of how jews prey upon us, with jewish 'art' and 'culture' used a weapon. Jews have had total control of Hollywood, since its beginning, to poison us. This is why Whites are so self hating and screwed up.

Please watch and comment.

I agree that modern art is a difilement and that it was just another strand in the overall attack on White culture and ethnicity. But, and it's a big but, Monet was one of the first of the Impressionists, and these guys set the ball rolling towards the debacle we have today.

Obviously you haven't seen what passes for art now in the jew sponsored multicult US. I have seen "art" here in the US that I could have sworn I saw that stuff on my eight year old's chalk board.

Cassius said...

katana, listened to that Youtube video. Powerful stuff but I think it's counter-productive to the overall message. It's over the top and will turn off the average person, the type of people we're trying to convince.

Dan said...

To be fair, what the feck have you got against Monet?

I know the Irish don't really produce artists, just writers.

The Irish aren't artists? We make great Piss Artists.

katana said...

Thanks Cassius for your view.

I agree. For the 'average person' it's over the top.

The 'average person' is simply a rule follower, not at all interested in making waves. They are the foundation of a stable society, but not the basis of initiating a change of course. 'They will eventually follow their respective 'thinking persons', though.

So, for our purpose, I think our target should be the 'thinking person'. Those, whether rich or poor, uneducated or not, who think for themselves. The five percent or so, or whatever. They lead their respective groups.

'The Eternal Jew', although an exaggeration for dramatic effect, tells the essential truth of what we are dealing with. In the world of art and culture (and in any other kind of world) the jews play the role of poisoners, habitually.

BTW, I'd like to recommend readers here to pay a visit to a new site;

There's only a few podcasts at the moment but all quite interesting.

Impressionism was the start of the descent into vileness,but Monet was still a great artist.

His near namesake Manet was even greater.

Look at "A bar at the Follies Bergiere" and tell me that is not a wonderful,wonderful picture.

I like Monet's work. Sure beats some of the displays in galleries nowadays. Like the toilet or 3 mounds of dirt...
