Ine - 20 - Oslo - history and art history student

I love the Tudor dynasty, the renaissance, modern history, all history really, art history, impressionism, Edvard Munch, fashion, healthy food, cooking, yoga, running, anti-nationalism, atheism, libertarianism, art, poetry, music, books, my cats, my horses, animals, Oslo, Stockholm, London, Led Zeppelin, records, designer bags, notebooks, knowledge, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Stellan Skarsgård and sons, and certain other people.

My historical heroine is Anne Boleyn and my current is Mary-Kate. And that describes me pretty well I think.

Anonymous : Hi I love your blog!! I love Europe and the history behind it. The thing is that I have to do a three page report on Europe. I decided to European art (I am a nerd when it comes to monarchies), but I have to do a certain country. I'm lost I want to know which country is best to learn about the art ( paintings and such) can you help me please? :-)

Hi there, how fun! And thank you btw! Do you have to do a special era of art? The renaissance in Italy is perhaps what I know best when it comes to art history, both 1400’s and 1500’s. There’s a lot of beauty there, and not just great artists, but that was when the whole view on artists started changing as well (from craftsman to genius and in the end almost godlike), so it’s such an important era in the history of art. My exam last term in art history was actually about Italy in the 1400’s, and that’s perhaps what I know best in art history, and can be of greatest help. Flanders, Germany, the Netherlands, and the places around during the same era and after were also really interesting. If you like monarchies, you’re might interested in British history then? If so, I think England had their greatest art during and after the industrial revolution actually, with JMW Turner leading the way in the pre-industrial-going-on-industrialism age and moving on till John Singer Sargent in the 1800’s. Turner was a link between romanticism and impressionism, and one of my fave artists of all time. He influenced many great British painters, so England during that time is also a great option. JS Sargent is also a huge fave of mine. Spain during romanticism is also amazing, with painters like Goya for example. But Spain as a whole has a grand art history though, with their most famous painter being perhaps Picasso. So if you’re not doing one specific era but one country as a whole with its art history during the ages, Spain is great. Then there’s France of course. For me, the greatest french art started with French gothic architecture, but you can trace French art’s origins all the way back to pre-romanesque times though, so that will be one hell of a long paper. But to start with for example Delacroix during the romantic age, and then move on to my favourite era - the impressionism (Caillebotte, Monet, Manet, Pissarro, Degas) and then post-impressionism, will be a fantastic paper.

Hm, this became a long answer. In short though: England, but that fits better if you’re only going to have about a specific era, as they’re not the greatest art country. If you’re going to have about one country as a whole with art through many eras though, I’d say Dutch art (You can talk about how they were influenced by Flemish painter Rubens in the Baroque, and then trace the art history all the way to Van Gogh for example), Italy (perhaps the actual art country though, too many great artists to even start mentioning), France, or Spain. Those are the countries where I personally know the art history best at least, and can be of help. Please, tell me what you decided on when you’ve come that far, and feel free to ask me anything! This is a huge passion of mine, so I’ll gladly help with anything. X.

My thing is, have sex whenever you decide to want to have sex. You want to have sex on the first night, go ahead. You want to have sex after 20 dates, go ahead. You want to never have sex, go ahead. People think that someone’s sexual choices actually coincide with their personality. If all you can think of someone’s worth is whether they want to have sex or not, then the problem is probably you.

Kylan blev min vän 
Min ursäkt för att gömma mig igen 
I musiken och Ziggy blev min bror 
När du fann mig satt jag hjälplös vid ett bord 
Jag som nyss föll till en obegriplig jord 
Du blev min räddning så obegripligt stort 

Att du vill vara min
