In order to be considered a well-educated and versatile person, you should have general knowledge in different areas. Over the course of history, people have created thousands of great works of art. Every person should know at least a few of them in order to not confuse a Monet with a Manet and to be able to distinguish between Lady with an Ermine and Girl with a Pearl Earring.
