Yeah, but more so in the states. I'm in Baltimore and they have tons of it here. Up in the Department of Defense Cafeteria in Columbia Maryland, they even have a special museum of art just for local artists to display their art: tapestries and watercolors and stuff. In local restaurants and bars, even like places like Hard Rock Cafe and stuff they have art on the walls. Or just local shops they have local art work or just the shop owners favorits. i find beauty in those art works, too.

Goodness me, Picasso is not worth my time...
What are you? Some sniveling, spiteful psyco-psuedo individual parading around in the name of Art disclaiming Picasso?
What did you ever do in the name of Art?
We're waiting....

That's nice, because that's why the Artists do it. So you can enjoy your time at the restaraunt.

Isn't that the most pressing question that could come up where painting were concerned.
And the sad fact is that is an actual question in the mind of a person from South Jersey. And that was the question also!
Yes, they have such in Russia. I have been there.
They have very nice restaraunts that serve tea at very relaxing places off the main Bolevaurd that only a person from South Jersey could wonder about.

Well, Mr. Small Town America, we are just so impressed!
And for you to be the beholder of Art, also!
I'm sure that London enjoyed you as well (ahem!).

Lets not get uppity, fellow! I have also travelled to russia and taken in the finer art scene. My question, hip shooter, is if they had such works of art in their local restaurants like we do.
AND while we are at it, SNOB, I would suggest you learn to spell restaurant correctly, or your phoney attempt to be like we finer and refined gentlemen will be immediately exposed to those who you desire to impress. A pseudo gentleman you are..An accomplished and refined gentleman I AM..
I also suggest you stop wearing sneaker's with your dinner attire when you visit your local high class eatery, McDonald's.

Who's getting uppity around here?
Not me!
When I get uppity you'll know it.
You haven't seen uppity.
I'll show you uppity.
You haven't seen uppity.....yet!
And while we're at it, moron, learn to spell Russia correctly. That's with a capital "R".
Speaking of which, how is it that you went all the way to Russia and back and are still left with the question about pictures in regional Bistros in your mind.
Weren't you there?! Don't you know?!
Must not be a very observant person.
I'm surprised that they even let you in the country if only to have you led around the museams with your nose buried in your Fodor's book. No wonder you didn't see anything.
And watch that "refined gentleman" stuff.
For you to consider yourself as such is easy.
But whether you are considered by others to be such is another matter.

I'd love to kick all those Harvard and Yale Morons asses who used to make fun of me while I was unwillingly attending school at the Secret Service University and tell them they ain't shit. That's what I'd like.

Ha, ha, ha!
You're right about that!
Harvard and Yale are for rich clowns. At Princeton one must work at one's educational prowess.
That's the difference.
My Father, who recieved his Doctorate from Princeton, eventually became a Dean at his own college at a University in Cincinnati.
Whenever someone came to apply for a position there and added in their resume that they had been to Harvard or Yale my Dad would view this a something more of a blackmark rather than an honorable credential.
That guy from Brown would get the job.

Educated gentlemen usually know when to use 'us' in place of 'we'. They also know how to spell 'phony'.

Pretentious blowhards usually do not.

Oh, that's what the small r was for. It wouldn't have anything to do with your being a lousy speller, would it?
And what's a "desent" Russian? Did you mean to spell "decent"?
Anyway, you could care less what I think and I on the other hand could care even less than that about what you think.
Even less than that.
Besides, i just wanted to see if anybody would notice if I mispelled restaurant. That's all.
Bafoon.

WOW!! An actual real imbecile squishing that pile of crap that he calls a brain together and coming up with some kind of opinion about Picasso.
Where are you from, Small Town America?
I'm flattered that you think that my Dad's academic record is so impressive.
Unfortunately I cannot say the same about you even if you did have an academic record beyond your obvious grade school diploma.
All the way to Russia and you don't offer any explanations?
Stupid moron.
