    Reminded me that I possess a paperback copy (1985 printing) of “Ways of Seeing” by John Berger. I think it was on an art school class syllabus. Thanks for video link!

    Thank you Gekko for posting this. I have never understood art, or so I thought, because I never saw the woo woo stuff that explained it. Boy do I wish I saw this documentary when I was a kid.

    What I still don't get about the Mona Lisa is why so many people are enamored by it?
    Happiness comes from within, nowhere else.
