This Month in Art History

December, 1939 - Just months before the Nazi invasion of France, the last truck pulled away from The Louvre Museum, laden with valuable works of art. The effort to relocate The Louvre's masterpieces for safekeeping lasted four months. It wasn't until the liberation of France, in 1945, that the art began to make its way back to the museum.

The soul thrives on art, and MisterArt.com is here to help your soul experience as much as possible! Whether you want to brush up on famous artists, explore the styles and periods of art, consult the glossary, or arm yourself with product knowledge from comprehensive purchase guides, MisterArt.com has collected all of the resources you need to plunge head-first into the dizzying world of visual arts.

The soul cannot thrive in the absence of art. If you don't want the pleasure of art, you are not human; and if you are not human, you don't have a soul.

- Thomas Moore

Latest Product Reviews

I have used these exact brushes exclusively for over 30 years teaching art to students from kindergarten to college. They hold up extremely well, if washed properly. They also hold a point and can handle a lot of paint at once. If taken care of they can last for years of continuous use. Students appreciate their quality and get much better results with a higher grade of brush, I cannot believe that Loew-Cornell has discontinued making them; so get them while you can find them.

I use this tape to hold the Mylar on the drafting table. It's a very good tape! It releases without leaving residue, and it is thin enough to let the rule slide on top. The tape doesn't break while unrolling, unlike many others. I highly recommend it.

This makes an excellent glazing medium since you can see what it looks like immediately upon application. The slow drying is a plus when using it for glazing.
