Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Surrealism (or is it?)

Transcendentalism, the Ralph Waldo Emerson kind, which for visual artists seems to get me to Winslow Homer. I'm ok with that.

Classic Lisa Frankism...I kinda miss that. It's changed somehow.

But I voted for impressionism. Yeah, I know, no connection there. That's just how I am.

Was it Emerson or Thoreau that lived in a cabin in the woods for a few years?

Good ol' Realism. Being able to replicate something like a photo is really underrated, imo.

But there will always be a special place in my heart for Lisa Frank.

Emerison...from what I remember from American Lit, Thoreau was kind of a pansy when it came to living with nature. I think he tried it one day and came back to the city.

Apparently the cabin Thoreau lived in (On Walden's Pond) was on Emerson's land and not the detached from civilization hideaway people might assume. I never understood why more people seem to reference Thoreau and not Emerson.
