I like Sister Wendy's enthusiasm. Vincent Price started collecting
art when he was a teenanger and has (had) one of the finest
collections. In response to the vein of prehistoric art and it
appears art history, I would use them in a lesson of art
appreciation. It seems much more reasonable to show the history but
maybe best called an art appreciation course.
