I majored in Art History in college. I started out with a sensible major (Business Economics), but I quickly changed during the second semester of my sophomore year. I took my first Economics class and understood nothing. I love Art History.
If you share my love of art, you will LOVE this: Google Art Project
It's so magical that I can't even describe it. To see Van Gogh's brush strokes...to see Cuyp's insane details...to see the magnificence of Versailles...
Pardon me while I go drool over artwork at my desk.
