That's art for you

Added on by Elissa Swanger.

“Looking through a book of drawings by Holbein I realize several moments of truth.  A nose ( a line) so nose-like.  So line-like.  And then I think to myself  ‘so what?’. It’s not going to solve any of my problems.  And then I realize that at the very moments of appreciation I had no problems. Then I decide that this is a pretty profound thought.  And that I ought to write it down.  That is what I have just done.  But it doesn’t sound so profound anymore.  That’s art for you.
