Home is Where the Art is

A weekend back at home meant a Sunday spent at my most frequented museum. With no new exhibits different from what I saw my last visit, today’s trip to the High Museum of Art was focused in the permanent section observing personal favorites as well as the museum as a work of art itself.

What we paint is a product of what we think and what we think is governed by what food we serve up to our mind.  Thomas Couture (1815 – 1879) offered sound advice in his book Conversations on Art Methods (1867) when he advised the young artist to read “good books” to feed the mind, including; Shakespeare, Homer, Virgil, Moliere, Cervantes, Rousseau, Bernardin de Saint Pierre. 425 more words

Okay, maybe that title is a little exaggerated, but still.

Unlike most contemporary art museums, The Broad is designed to house and display one person’s collection. 1,899 more words
