Art history

I just read a line in A Trip To The Stars by Nicholas Christopher that just struck me so personally…

“It was amazing to me, when I thought back on it later, that I got my art history, not from slides or photographs in coffee-table books, but from viewing the objects firsthand, close enough to touch”.

This feels so true to my experience… not just with paintings, photography and sculpture but also with literature and music and knowing the writers and artists as well. Oh, mom… what a special thing this was.

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
