How to Pretend You Understand Art by Mr. Forthright

In “How to Pretend You Understand Art”, the indefatigable Mr. Forthright demonstrates how to pretend to understand works of art so as to “look less idiotic” while perusing a gallery.

Learn the vocabulary: Art Deco, Cubism, Impressionism. Bonus points for talking about Cuba while doing an Adam Sandler impression.

For more wisdom by Mr. Forthright, see our previous posts.
