Today, let's have a bit of art:

1. John William Waterhouse
He is known for working in the Pre-Raphaelite style. His artworks show women from both ancient Greek mythology and Arthurian legend. His most famous piece is The Lady of Shalott.

3. Claude Monet
He was a founder of French Impressionist painting and mostly painted the french countryside. Very well known are his series of water lilies. (I mean you probably know this guy.)

Impression, Sunrise. The painting that gave its name to the style and artistic movement.

4. Frida Kahlo
She mostly painted self-portraits. Inspired by Mexican popular culture, she employed a naïve folk art style. She suffered from chronic pain almost her whole life, which influenced her art as well. (That's why I can identify with her. Tbh I could write an essay about her, she is such an inspiration in terms of chronic illness, feminism, lgbtq, identity, postcolonialism, gender and race.)
