Exactly. But we don't have to go very far back (or away) to get a fresh
perspective. I know I've mentioned the stack of 1960's - 70's "Horizon"
magazines I got (68 of them for $6!) at my library booksale recently. To
read the "latest" art & history scholarship from even that recent of an era
is an eye-opener for me. Among other things, there are many articles
celebrating the arts of cultures now even more distanced from us due to the
current political climates (the Arab world in particular).
