"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."
I don't understand what the trick of this one is supposed to be. I'm not getting the painting at all.Help?
The trick is that it is not really a wall with letters on it, but a painting of a wall with letters on it. It helps to remember that it was painted in the infancy of photography and something this realistic would not be as fmiliar to viewers then as it is now.Martha
Thank you, Martha. I wasn't thinking of it so simply. I understand it now.And I love your blog. It's so nice to have one link on my favorites page that isn't topical, late-breaking, or something I need to do anything about--it's just a random bit of beauty and a glimpse of some artist's story from somewhere in this big old history of humanity. I love that.
