Check out this link from the Guardian about Alain de Botton’s intervention at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam…
Thanks for the link, this is really interesting, especially because of Alain de Botton’s current show at the AGO in Toronto, also on the art-as-therapy theme. (Plus, I’m reading his book on Travel right now.)
Thanks for the feedback Penny. Let me know what you think of the AGO show. I like his approach, since it seems to get folks to think about the art they’re looking at, rather than simply looking at art as pretty pictures that would be hard to paint.
it’ll be a few weeks before I’m back home and can spend time in the AGO show… but I can at least report that I’m enjoying his “Travel” book. The AGO is a compatible place for his approach, even the regular placards pose questions
Thanks Penny. I’m going to look for his Travel book.
