adding my 2 cents. I agree with all the replies so far. My description probably can't be used in an art history paper, But when we discuss the difference between the "Real thing" V.S. the book or image on a computer screen, I make an analogy. I teach teen agers by the way. I say remember your first kiss? Okay now come on over and kiss the computer screen... ( we are usually in the computer lab). It about that. NOthing will substitute for the real experience of seeing the size, the consistantly of the paint or surface. The sense of presence that the art work has. For a finely tuned artist, seeing real art can be a religious experience. Randy in chilly Central Maine
