Portrait of G. Stolyarov II by Wendy D. Stolyarov. (C) 2005, Wendy D. Stolyarov.
Welcome to the Main Hall of Mr. Stolyarov's Gallery of Rational Art, a collection of paintings-- from artists of both past and present-- that exemplify the meticulous structure, exalted dignity, and inspiring content of art as it can and should be. This collection intends to serve as fuel for the human spirit and guidance toward the emergence of a new cultural Renaissance. Mr. Stolyarov, the Editor-in-Chief of The Rational Argumentator, wishes to demonstrate that "avant-garde postmodernism," mysticism, and irrationalism are not the final words on art, that they are overrepresented in the mass media, which snobbishly and with deliberate evasiveness ignores the works of far more competent and noble past and present creators. You can navigate to a display of the selected works of any of the featured artists by clicking on their names below.
