I was just wondering if Lara is really an art buff deep down inside... Because I'm taking a history of art class and learning about ancient artifacts which I guess can be considered ancient art.

And Lara collects so much ancient "art" and displays it in her home and stuff... I wonder if she were really living if she would be kind of like an ancient art dealer

Has there ever been paintings or art in the TR games or have they always just been artifacts? I remember one game having something to do with obscura paintings...

No, she's buff art. :D

'Sorry - couldn't resist.

An art dealer, hmmm... It would definitely fit as a side hobby, but you've gotta think she'd get bored fast with all that sitting around the gallery chit-chatting and wine-sipping.

I think there're 2 types of art collection in her home: family collection & personal collection. Her family's collection would be the paintings that art buffs from her...family collected :p

Her personal collection is the artifacts (may or may not be art) that she's obtained over the years. I don't think she's an art buff, more of a history buff :)

Well perhaps she would go and fetch ancient art herself and then also do what she has to do to take it from other art dealers lol

Well, in Angel of Darkness she was after the Obscura Paintings.

I guess if you're into psychoanalyzing a fictional personality, yeah she could be anything you want.

I suppose, appreciating all forms of art comes as a secondary purpose to her 'hobby'. But I don't think she knows art as well as, for instance, an art critic. She still has much to learn in that respect.

Nope. She's a thief and a murderer ;)

Technically she wasn't after them for their artwork though, but to stop Eckhardt getting what was inside the paintings.

I think she probably appreciates art in its various forms, but I wouldn't say she was an art buff as such. She's like a magpie who gathers 'pretty' things. But in saying that if there happens to be art in the vicinity she doesn't seem too concerned if it gets damaged during one of her raids.
