An interesting analysis of art history focusing on the role of the viewer more than that of the artist, incorporating the purpose of the objects as well. Beautifully illustrated with clear photographs (more books like this need this kind of photos), and concise description.

#TIL I had a very good public education, but it seemed like aside from reading Anne Frank‘s Diary we never learned much about World War II in history class. We always seemed to stop just after the Civil War. It wasn‘t until I visited England and Europe in college that I began to fully appreciate the horrors of that war. And now I‘m starting to appreciate what all the art went through and what a miracle it is to still have it. #NFNov

An embarrassing admittance: I know little of Symbolist artist Gustav Klimt and even less of the true story behind one of his #masterpiece paintings the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.

In the end, images of power are only as powerful as those who view them allow them to be.

#TIL During WWII MOMA would take their paintings down, and store them in sandbags. Each morning they would put them back up again. #NFNov

This won‘t be upsetting AT ALL. Nonfiction can be hard for me to make time for when I‘m reading after work (I find it requires a level of mental engagement I can‘t always give) so audiobook version at work it is! Ready to rage at my desk this week. #nonfictionnovember #booked2019 #soldiersstory

Cinfhen I‘ve seen the film and was really consumed 3w

I couldn‘t make myself stay in all day I just couldn‘t do it even when I‘m ill! So I took myself out on the spur of the moment to the William Blake exhibition at the Tate Britain and was absolutely blown away by his dreamy mystical art and weird (good... but weird) poetry. Here‘s one of my faves from the show!
