Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test…

Traditional, Vibrant, and Tasteful

14 Islamic, -10 Impressionist, 12 Ukiyo-e, -15 Cubist, -17 Abstract and 14 Renaissance!

Islamic art is developed from many sources: Roman, Early Christian, and Byzantine styles were taken over in early Islamic architecture; the architecture and decorative art of pre-Islamic Persia was of paramount significance; Central Asian styles were brought in with various nomadic incursions; and Chinese influences . Islamic art uses many geometical floral or vegetable designs in a repetitive pattern known as arabesque. It is used to symbolize the transcendent, indivisible and infinite nature of Allah.

People that like Islamic art tend to be more traditional people that appreciate keeping patterns that they learned and experienced from their past. It is not to say that they are not innovative personalities, they just do not like to let go of their roots. They like to put new ideas into details and make certain that they will work before sharing them with others. Failure is not something they like to think about because they are more interested in being successful and appreciated for their intelligence. These people can also be or like elaborate things in their life as long as they are tasteful. They tend to prefer geometric patterns and vibrant colors.

Well, I do tend to like some persian and islamic stuff but usually I actually prefer chinese paintings, and I adore Northern Renaissance work (like Jan van Eyck and Dürer) more than the better-known southern stuff except of course for Da Vinci, who’s almost as high in my estimation as Dürer. Plus I’m very fond of a lot of 20th-21st century stuff. Then again, I’m better versed in art and art history than most people are, so my tastes are possibly more eclectic as well. The pieces that were in this quiz poorly represented my tastes in those scores, but the personality take’s not far off. That particular piece with the horses is simply lovely though.
