...would love to go.
I love Odd Nerdrum's paintings.
Never thought of describing his art as kitsch.
However, there is some talk of a new branch of art called Kitsch.
I looked up kitsch in some online dictionaries and found:
: something that appeals to popular or lowbrow taste and is often of poor quality
: something of tawdry design, appearance, or content created to appeal to popular or undiscriminating taste
: works of art and other objects (such as furniture) that are meant to look costly but actually are in poor taste
Origin: 1925–30; German, derivative of kitschen - to throw together (a work of art)
Could lead to some good discussion at our salons.
