'The Independent' provides a helpful guide in case you ever had any doubts on the matter. Needless to say, criticaldance readers, who show amazingly good taste just by being here, are bound to come out with their artistic credentials held high. <P><BR><A HREF="Http://www.independent.co.uk/argument/Regular_columnists/John_Walsh/walsh140900.shtml" TARGET=_blank><B>Are you a philistine?</B></A><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited September 15, 2000).]

I just loved that questionnaire. Of course, everyone knows the answer to no. 1 is a. "It's amazing how the eyes follow you around the room." It's always been my criteria for a quality painting, including landscapes.

Nice one Maggie. It reminds me of a famous Pete and Dud sketch (Peter Cook and Dudley Moore) in their first wonderful post-grad incarnation on UK TV.<P>They were discussing painting and Pete described how the test of a good nude painting was whether the bottoms followed you round the room.

Great, Stuart! Are you also a fan of the movie "Bedazzled?"
