Last week I shared the most popular posts on painting from 2017. This time I would like to share the most popular posts that are not so much about painting, but art history, exhibition reviews and more.

Which posts did you like the best and which were particularly helpful? Do let me know!

My blog has received nearly 100K visitors this year, which I think sounds pretty cool. Thank you so much everyone to help me make this blog as informative, inspirational and beautiful as possible.
