The significance of the 3 works chosen for Art From Us, Museum Guide #901
The Museum of Bad Art is proud to be the only museum in the world dedicated to bad art.
The collection presented in here is of works that meant to represent landscapes, but took an unfortunate turn somewhere in the process of creation.
The artistic greats underwent years of practice, societal ridicule, en plein air painting and some degree of starvation to be able to portray mother nature in all her glory. Some of the artists never even gained recognition or popularity in their own lifetime, and were bankrupt at the time of death. The artists housed at the MOBA are unlike them.
The works presented here demonstrate a lack of understanding of perspective, as well as a lack of technical skill. Therefore, they fit just perfectly into this particular Museum’s collection.
