Good afternoon Bert,

I wanted to thank you for putting together your collection of art galleries and resources! My daughter Katie's Girl Scout troop is currently working on their Arts and Crafts Fun Patch and the art websites on your page helped us a bunch!

Due to COVID-19, her troop has continued to cancel all in person meetings, but we're hoping to resume our regular schedule sometime in May. We're keeping our fingers crossed...the girls really miss each other!

That being said, Katie's troop leader still encouraged us parents to work with our girls at home to ensure we don't fall too far behind! She asked the girls to find some fun, at-home activities for crafting and arts & culture. Your page led us to some great websites to check out, so Katie and I wanted to make sure we thanked you :)

And if it's not too much trouble, I was hoping you could add another link to your page? Katie found this arts and crafts guide which I loved...

I thought other kids/families would get some use out of it while they're stuck at home. Can you add it on here?

I would LOVE to show Katie and her troop leader. It's always nice to get some recognition for a job well done, especially during this difficult year. And I know Katie would be delighted to see she could help other aspiring artists ;)

Our Troop actually has a Zoom call Friday after school, if you get a free moment to include it at some point by then... I would really appreciate it :)

Mrs. Sarah Jackson 
John Die


It'd be nice if there was a date attached to the messages

Bert replies: I will think about it.


Art is to exist ... Thanks

You appear to be weird and intelligent. And you are an animal lover. I like you.

I enjoyed the website.  I have a possible sniglet.  There is probably already one out there for this, but I made my own... Cellaphore The act of waving your cell above your head to get a better signal.

Greetings, Bert Christensen - Just a quick message to tell you how much I am enjoying your Cyberspace art gallery of bad art and excellent captions. I teach art history at the University of Wisconsin and I've been laughing out loud all afternoon! Best regards,

Interesting that one of your paintings shows a backyard so strikingly similar to ones in the US in that century.

Just read your list of Sniglets, and one of my favorites is not there.  At least I think it's a sniglet.  It's the word "snackage" to describe all types of snacks available.  I use the word all the time and it gets giggles now and then.  How is this word not in the OED by now?  But at the very least should be on a list of sniglets. :-)

Just re-found your web site after a long absence. Enjoyed the paintings, especially the Russian link. Thanks......Derek


My hubby gives me a hard time re words I use.  There have been some that have shocked him that their actually in the dictionary, I'm thankful there is a place I can put the rest, Sniglets!!!  Example of a recent Sniglet: Crimeanitly - The unexplained craziness of politics, society, drivers, mates, children, etc.  Instead of cursing, I use "For crimeanitly sake" quite often.

I love the way you order the universe around you. You know, you could embellish the Pronounciation page by giving clues here and there. Or would that - in your opinion - lower the standard for pronounciation? I am a Dutch speaker and I studied lots of years to get the appropriate level of knowledge in the English language, but yet: during reading out loud your Pronounciation poem I doubted how to pronouce some of the words. It's an awful poem allright. Kudos to you!

As up till now I only wet my toes in your ocean of knowledge, so to speak, you can be assured that I will be back for different topics another time. Keep up the good word!


Found your site today while looking for muskrat recipes. Excellent job! Read everthing on the site. A truly astounding collection. Keep up the good work.

Message: Yesterday, Monday 27th January 2014, we were in Glasgow to see Jack`s exhibition. All his most famous paintings were present, which surprised me. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would urge everyone to go and see it. It took me five hours to get there, but was still worth the effort. I bought a book of Jack`s paintings, but was surprised to find some paintings represented on this site that were not mentioned in the book. I am looking for prints of two pictures I saw in a shop about seven years ago. " A man standing at a bar looking right" and " A woman standing at a bar looking left" These two pictures obviously go together as a matching pair. The bar is continued through the paintings. Can anyone help with what they were called and where I could get them. Thanking you in advance.

Message: Bert, I don't know who you are but if you get the opportunity to convey my gratitude to Jack, please do so. I just love his work and cannot rest each year until I have the latest calendar on my wall.
I don't know whether he (Jack Vettriano) has one yet, whether is planning one or whether he is still painting and wants to wait until he's stopped doing that but I believe that a hardcover book containing his work would be a best seller. The man just has a way of capturing a mood and a moment in the same way that Norman Rockwell used to.
Please pass on this message if you can.

I, for one, am so tired of the hyper-critical, super-pretentious "art" world . . . whose constituents seem to think that they can set the standard for what is considered "good" and "bad" art. This site is marvelous! Keep up the good work, and please be open to new artists.

Message: Hi there,
I wanted to thank you so very much for taking the time to put this amazing website together! I can't imagine the enormity of such a task, and I thank you for the days, weeks, months, and years even perhaps, that this effort must have taken. I love you for it, and will forever be indebted to your kindness. I hope your life if filled with joy, sacred moments, and freedom from the ties that can bind us as humans. Our gifts, that we eventually discover, provide a way for us to do something every day in our lives that not only makes us happy, but is sacred to us. By doing the things we love, and are naturally good at, we can remain true to ourselves, and what makes us truly happy so we can love and inspire others to find in themselves, and to do the same. Your love for art, you have now shared with us, and in turn, inspired us all. I would love it if you had a tumblr account, so I could easily share the paintings to all of those who follow me on tumblr, but I can still share them if I have your permission. Thank you!

You present reality in an amusing way and I find it refreshing someone has finally decided to come out with the truth, as weird as it may sound to some.

This website gives access to so many works by various artists at the finger tips that, in my view, as an artist myself,  it delivers better service than the official galeries on the web, no matter how famous they may be. Great work at the service of the public capable to appreciate the true value of what an artwork may represent and give to humanity. Bravo

It was always revered by display in our home as we raised our three children. Yet, as with time it symbolized more then a begining, so when a large wind blew through our doorwall and brought it off it's mounting above our fireplace we were awaken to it's family inity, our member was lost. We are now retired and moved from Michigan to Arizona, but with time we think of it as one we lost, and wished, "if we could ever find another we..." If you know of a large Litho, or print someplace, please advise. Thank you for your site. It is now in our Favorites.

Message: Googled "Drop Kick Me Jesus" and selected your link.  What A Blessing!  I'm going through a rough patch - emotionally, financially, physically and spiritually. In trying to bounce back I read my Bible (sometimes online - lol!), I play songs from my gospel collection (which is extensive - I've played for churches since I was 12yrs old) - I'm 69yrs).  Today (Friday July 27, 2011)  I decided perhaps humor would heal the 'spiritual burn-out'.  It's rough-sledding on the Christianity 'slopes' even for saints like Mother Teresa (deceased).  Ofttimes we have to ask Christ to grab and pull us back into the fold.
Be blessed!

Message: The line between good and poor art is very thin. Not all of these pictures are that bad - at least the artists of some have the technical knowhow and the right vision to create interesting work. They try to get the most out of these two journeys. We may not agree or understand their motifs, they are like a lonewolf. But most of your examples are indeed bombs - painful. Why is bad art like an pandemic? Why does it hurt so much to look at bad art?
Bert responds:
The title of the page in question is "Weird, Strange & Just Plain Bad Art Collection." I think that all of the art on that page falls into the parameters of the title.

Message: dear sir,
A lot of these paintings are or have been quite innovating when they were made and would be judged as such by anybody with a bit of an eye for beauty. I'm not offended by any means here and there's no arguing taste afteral, but honestly, if a website states unusual and bad art (complete with "funny" remarks) it becomes a bit embarrasing when the quality of the pictures and the lay out is the worse thing on the site.
kind regards

However; are you sure Leda is by Jean-Michel Moreau and not by Gustave Moreau? (The teacher of Matisse and Roualt)  I checked a couple other sites and they attribute it to Gustave.   And I have a book on Gustave Moreau and am familiar of his style.  
And Jean-Michel was mainly an engraver.
Keep up your good work.

Message: On your page, you have a painting by Fernando Botero, an internationally renowned, Colombian artist, and the piece you have featured, the fat woman in the bathroom, is titled "The Bathroom," and was done in 1989. Not to be rude, but this is not "bad" art. He paints this way because he admires the balloon-like aesthetic of his inflated human and animal forms. Including the piece here without explanation makes you look somewhat uncultured.

Bert Responds,
The title of the page is "Weird, Strange & Just Plain Bad Art Collection." The painting is certainly strange, even weird. Furthermore, humour is essential in virtually all things. Michelangelo's David, Whistler's Mother and many many more have had humour attached to them. If this makes me "look somewhat uncultured,"  so be it.

I am so much grateful to you for the gallery. It is awesome, really. I found so many my favourite artists, as well as quite unfamiliar.

The Bert Christensen's Weird, Strange & Just Plain Bad Art Collection made me smile. I've shown it to my husband Victor and we laughed together at some of the paintings.

I live in Kiev, Ukraine. Worked for many years as a professional translator/ interpreter. Now retired.

I enjoyed your work very much and will show the gallery to my daughter who is a professional art historian. Hope she'll enjoy it as well. And to my grand-daughter Maria who is just 9, and goes to an art school. Hope she'll learn fine arts through your gallery in future.

Have a nice weekend, and all the best to you and the family.

Love the site - frigging hilarious. I hit on it because our topic of conversation last night was about the mickey. I do believe it IS a Canadian term but where does the term come from? I am trying to track it down - just 'cause now it is one of those things I gotta know (being a girl of course). I live in Northwestern Ontario and have the tuque, ski-doo, stansfield long underwear, etc., etc., etc. Take care and thanks for the humour

Though I am the lover of mediaeval art and paintings, but the 20th century paintings of William Shih-Chieh Hung are no less impressive,  having a different angle in the art, which states more of impressionism with extreme beauty.

Comments:  I love Jack Vettriano's work.  Even more impressive than his bold, humanistic choice of subject matter and unique style is the fact that he is self-taught.  I am also impressed with his ability to be artistic without sacrificing practically.  So what if he's criticized for making a profit during his lifetime, that does not make him any less stellar in my eyes.  Who says everybody has to starve for the sake of their art?  Hasn't the world seen it's share of martyrs yet?  Good for you Jack, I'd kiss you, if I could.

Comments:  Good day to the entire Christensen Family,
This site is extraordinary.  The cats, of course, caught my eye.
My question is have you ever been to the largest Danish Community outside Denmark in New Denmark, New br/unswick, Canada?  They have a celebr/ation every June in honor of the landing in Canada. My ex husband's name is spelled Kristensen and his father was born in Denmark.
Keep up the great site.
