Brian Yoder's website
B. Yoder's website contains a wonderful gallery of the more obscure masterpieces of modern art, plus the bio of the artists. This man is intelligently critical of modern art, as he expresses in his introduction to his "gallery of the worst art" which he contrasts with the great but obscure artists such as Bougereau, Cole, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema and Parrish:
"I couldn't put a page full of good art on the net without contrasting it with the bulk of what "artists" have produced in the 20th century. At best it's ugly, revolting, superficial, and spiteful. At worst it is an intellectual vacuum wearing a mask of public acclaim (a public composed of a few "art experts" whose first principles are that art is anything, everything, and nothing, that beauty is passe' and that subjects and meaning are obsolete and a naive concern). With their help, the 'artists' of today fill our museums with expensive garbage designed to obliterate the very meaning and purpose of art. In discussing these issues, I often lack a common concrete set of works to which I can refer when I talk about various kinds of bad art and non-art, so I have included some typical examples of some of various kinds here. Needless to say, inclusion in this list doesn't mean I like or respect the artists or their works. The exact opposite is the case."
