After a considerable period of boom, from the pre-Impressionists to the Fauvists, landscape painting has now fallen into disuse, abandoned to amateur painters. The popularity of the photo, smartphones, and photo sharing such as Instragram, is largely responsible

Expired stock certificatesMoney is an intimate, taboo subject in much of our European world. We do not broadly display our profits and losses. Similarly, the bedroom or bathroom are intimate, taboo worlds that are closed and personal. These are the situations where we get naked, in every sense of the word.
