Example text

By far, the largest percentage of books and films made about art center on well-known artists and movements from the history of Western art. Books about van Gogh sell well in Europe, North America, Japan, and elsewhere. However, it would be unlikely to see books about individual Japanese or Indonesian artists doing well in North America. Part of this is due to the limited experience that the potential audiences for these books have of non-Western art, but this inequity is also due to the publisher’s need and desire to turn a profit on the book.

I just wanted the image of the breast really. The exposed breast is hinting at motherhood but those images are very sexually charged. She’s painted as this beautiful, passive, angelic woman, pure and very attractive looking.
