3 minute lesson
We can explore the arts in many ways many, but there is something very interesting revealed by looking at things in a clever way.
Let’s celebrate works of art throughout the ages by looking at them in a new way! This video looks at the way painters have painted women from 1470 to 1951. What will seeing the long history of women in art side by side show us?
We each find our own takeaway message in the collection when presented to us like this. And that is the beauty of great art: it touches a chord in most and is at the same time uniquely personal.
That’s the wonder of great art: you will see something I completely missed and vice versa.
