Do We Need Art ?
I try to answer the question as to whether we truly need art in our lives. I give examples of the ways man has communicated over time through art.

Dürer’s ‘Four Apostles’ Painting Misinterpreted
One of the greatest Renaissance artists of the 16th century was Albrecht Dürer. In honor of the anniversary of his death, the Solomon Islands issued stamps of ‘The Four Apostles’ in 1978, but unfortunately, there was a mistake in identifying the saints.

Earth Sculptures by Maya Lin
Maya Lin is best known as the winning designer chosen for the National Vietnam Veterans' Memorial in Washington, DC. So what are earth sculptures?

East Meets West – Modern Indian Art at MFA Boston
The culture of India is rich in old world traditions, but the artists of today are breaking new ground. See what makes a private collection of modern Indian art so exciting.

Edward Hopper Exhibition at the MFA, Boston
An exhibition debuting at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston highlights not only Edward Hopper´s iconic works, but also the lighthouses of southern Maine and other less familiar works.

Endangered Threatened Animals Used in Art Objects
While visiting the MFA in Boston, I realized how some animals and species are now endangered or threatened due to the demand for certain materials for ornamental purposes. The exhibit displays examples of jewelry made from these ‘natural’ treasures.

Explaining Artistic License
I try to explain the reason artists digress from "what is" in the real world to create forms that are unrealistic and exaggerated.

Explaining Vanitas - Dutch Still Life Paintings
The Baroque artist Jacques de Gheyn II is considered the first to paint still life and flower paintings. He also created some of the earliest female nudes in Dutch art.

Faberge Imperial Eggs - a Celebration of Easter
Russian jeweler Peter Carl Faberge is best known for the Imperial Eggs he created for Czar Nicholas II. I discuss the exhibit "Faberge in America" that took place in 1996 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY and the unparalled Faberge Easter Eggs.

Fake Art & Forged Antiquities
Dutch artist Han van Meegeren holds the distinction of being the master Vermeer forger of the 1930s. In 2003 the British Museum would buy a fake statue. More will follow.
