I was an Art History major in college, so I thought I knew a lot about art. I found that I was looking at it from an aesthetic, symbolic and historical view, rather than crazy funny. Why didn’t they teach us this stuff in school? We thought we knew so much, and look at all we missed.
However, there is one glaring error on p. 107, "Woman Trading Daughter for a Case of Benedictine Wine". The monks are Franciscans, as is obvious by their brown habits, distinctive cowls and 2-strap Birkenstocks. But more importantly: might there be a difference in the quality of Benedictine vs. Franciscan wine?! ;)
While waiting for "That Is Priceless, Vol. II", get a daily fix of Melcher on his TiP website and his daily TiP-toon on GoComics.
