Art Appreciation

August 25 2005 Art Appreciation Newsletter

I know Oprah Winfrey is a billionaire and has almost a cult following. But I ask myself, "Are her book recommendations any better than mine?" I think not. It doesn't take a genius to realize "Dr. Zhivago" is a great novel. So, move over Oprah, while I share a few of my favorite picks with you, my Art Appreciation readers. In my article, "Where Harry Potter and Bosch Coexist," I've recommended a fun, easy read for young adults, "Catherine, Called Birdy." It is the diary of a fourteen year old in the year 1290. One of my most popular articles is, "Jesus in Religious Art." There I recommend a video, "The Face -- Jesus in Art." I watched this once on PBS TV and I was amazed at how they could computer generate the faces of Jesus as depicted over the ages. In my article, "Caravaggio: Sinner or Artist Extraordinaire?" I recommend a book that is as close to any biography on this great artist, "M: The Man Who Became Caravaggio." The next time you read one (or many) of my articles, take a look at the book, poster, or video recommendation. You may see something that tweaks your interest. I'm sure even Oprah receives an income from her book recommendations. Happy reading! Buy Posters Here From
