  1. Took one introductory art history course with this professor and will take his Impressionism this semester!! I like how Professor Ribner uses rather flowery and beautiful language when describing a painting, I think it is a very nice way to draw people’s attention to the details we could easily be missing otherwise. He is very passionate and opinionated in his lecturing and what impressed me especially was how he was willing to take time to walk with a student with a lot of questions (me, for example) and answering all of them patiently. This article points out something I’d always been curious about–while the society looks to young artists, how should the older generation make their relationship with art evergreen?
