Monet Picasso and Pigeons

I know what you are thinking.  What have these in common.  Well, I came across this interesting article.  Tell me what you think.

As an owner of a pigeon I know that my bird knows where everything is, what time it is and what is expected to happen next.  He is the most intelligent bird I have ever had, and I have and have had many.

Pigeons successfully learned to discriminate color slides of paintings by Monet and Picasso. Following this training, they discriminated novel paintings by Monet and Picasso that had never been presented during the discrimination training. Furthermore, they showed generalization from Monet's to Cezanne's and Renoir's paintings or from Picasso's to Braque's and Matisse's paintings. These results suggest that pigeons' behavior can be controlled by complex visual stimuli in ways that suggest categorization. Upside-down images of Monet's paintings disrupted the discrimination, whereas inverted images of Picasso's did not. This result may indicate that the pigeons' behavior was controlled by objects depicted in impressionists' paintings but was not controlled by objects in cubists' paintings.

Owning a pigeon, I happen to believe this is true.  But am curious as to what others think.

Here is the original link where I took a small excerpt.  You may like to read more!

Shattered Lily Abstract Grunge Art Print

Shattered Lily Abstract Grunge
Flowers always fascinate me, but there are so many images of straight flowers looking absolutely beautiful that I love creating different and more emotive images - emotive in a sense that they come from within me and whatever you see as a viewer is the beauty of abstract.

Yellow Red and Green Highly Modern Colors which would brighten and enliven any room. A sense of movement within the artwork gives a tender touch of elegance and the impasto paint a very contemporary appearance. A lily is imaginatively shattered.

Crescendo Of Spring Abstract Art Print

Crescendo Of Spring is an abstract realistic work representational of the heralding of Spring and Summer. I love the changing of seasons and finding new ways to represent each season in an emotive way as to how I feel about the change rather than do a repeat of what has been done before - and I still love doing what has done before, as there is great beauty in what is totally natural and more realistic, but at this time my art is taking me in a more abstract or impressionistic direction which I am really enjoying working from the emotive rather than the visual.
