Dedicated to the brave discoverers of the 'New and Brave World'

      odern day artists often lock themselves into separate categories such as Portrait artists, Landscape artists, Still-life artists, etc. and they fear to break out-of-that-box. 
The Masters of the past however, loved to paint everything, they were savvied in various genres of painting and referred to themselves as Artists, with the capital "A".  Furthermore, the ultimate goal of any artist of that time, was to create a grand multi-figurative painting -  the kind of work where one could face the extreme challenges and test their knowledge and artistic skills all around, in order to truly explore themselves as an Artist.
So, let us aim for the stars, like the Great Masters did, and follow their example!
