I'm not a cultural man, nor will I ever claim to be one, but I will say that these kinds of paintings always strike me as baffling compared to what we display today.
Modern Art is just.. ew. What happened to striking paintings such as these? We still enjoy them, why stop making them?

Even in architecture, everything's got to be slick and smooth and as boring as possible.
I assume it's to improve functionality and provide bigger space while retaining an somewhat 'edgy', by lack of a better word, status.

Personally, I'd like to see a barok inspired skyscraper. I do know there's quite a few impressive buildings out there that aplly that sort of style but dammit, they're old.
We don't see enough playing with the old while integrating the new.
You want to impress others with your building? Construct a 18th century inspired office building.

Emanates class like no other.
