In the last couple of weeks, I took part in a course on “Art Appreciation” by monsieur César Nammour of Vecto Verso (here). He is a top Lebanese art critic and created, together with his beautiful German friend Gabi, this art book shop located at Rue Monot in Ashrafieh, where they also organize a monthly book market. He taught us a lot about how to evaluate a work of art, especially contemporary and modern. Do you know the alphabet of art already? Its most important elements are the lines, the space and the color used! Look at the colors in the contemporary painting above. The painter even respected the 2/3-1/3 rule! This piece is to be found in my personal museum. And the painter is the greatest Lebanese artist ever: My 4-year old nephew RANI. Monsieur César, make a note of this name!!
