    I'm into reading about art but I also like it when you know nothing about a painting and its mysterious - and you are able to see the visual power of it more purely, and the meaning of it can reveal itself through the paint rather than the caption

    well it's different ways of engaging innit. there's the sensory experience and the pure pleasures of the eye and then there's the kind of impedimenta of context that padraig is appealing too. can switch between the two just as you do when reading.

    yeah - with the painting i just stuck in there i saw it and was struck by it without knowing what it was of

    when i found out what it was of it made it a bit less magical, but obviously the intention of the artist (Corot) was to depict a biblical scene

    (the funny thing about the paintings on the internet is how much the colours vary from uploader to uploader. i quite like it.)
