Germaine argument: Leonardo flighty


    Actually, secretly I have always kind of agreed with her.On a personal reaction level. He was an extreme left-brain type. And that is not the ultimate in art to me. (Even worse along these lines: Poussin. Leonardo at least pays some attention to emotions.) Of course I have also trained myself over the years to remove my personal taste from judging quality. He's high quality left-brain "art". And the opposite, extreme right-brain art, is the stuff that would usually make most people go "wow". So while I totally get why a Bill Gates type would be gaga over Leonardo, what I am not sure of  to this day is the reason masses appreciate him. Whether they are doing that because they've been told they should or is it their own reaction with their own eyes?
