A brillant, courageous and ambitious initiative!

The article of Fred Ross is more than a bit provocative.

It is a good thing to bring to the open the brainwashing to which three generations in the 20th century have been exposed. Let's hope that ART RENEWAL CENTER will contribute to a rebirth of western art in the 21th century.

I am not sure if William Bouguereau should be considered one of the greatest painters ever. He has, however, great merits and has been scandalously maligned. I was fortunate to see, in the beginning of 1984, the exposition in the Petit Palsis in Paris, consecrated to the work of this great painter. This exposition contributed much to a reappraisal of his work.
