    Old Masters Banned

    For some time I ponder if certain Old Masters were around these days, how quickly they would get banned from forums like this regardless of their talent. On my list I have Michaelangelo, Caravaggio and David. Van Gogh would most likely get a temporary ban. So who else would you add and why?

    Paul Gauguin probably would get a temporary banning at the same time as van Gogh. You know we'd have to separate those two. Goya had a few issues in his latter days, though he would have banned himself.

    What about Dalí? He had a very particular personality. Although I am not sure to what extent he counts as an Old Master.

    Actually, Michelangelo was also known to have a bit of a temper and bouts of rage. So he'd probably get several temporary bans before being perms-banned.

    Gauguin would probably always be on the line between being banned before throwing a fit and starting his own forum on a remote island, with blackjack and hookers.

    Hitler would definitely get banned. Instead of concentrating on the improvement of his art he started a world war that resulted in the loss of million lives. I think that kind of attitude is a total no-go for sites like CA. Although it is debatable if he was an old master...

    Anything unrelated to elephants is irrelephant.

    Yeah, Hitler's not an old master.

    Neither is Dali, but I reckon out of all of them he'd get himself banned the fastest.

    Wasn't Picasso a piece of work as well? Although he's not exactly a master either. I don't remember how bad he was, just that people complained he tended to suck the energy out of them.

    Just look at his girlfriends. Of the seven most important women in Picasso's life, two killed themselves and two went mad.

    Rolf Harris.

    In his prime he even painted the Queen of England's portrait. But over time he overeached himself. He wasn't just handy with a paint brush. I always knew that he was up to no good on top of that lighthouse. Towns all over the planet have removed his art work. He would have no hope of being allowed here.
