Elmer Fudd BS: So who here's a visual artist? (53* d) RE: BS: So who here's a visual artist? 04 Dec 06


Amen to the alchemy that can take place when viewing original artwork versus prints and copies. Even images one has seen thousands of times has a fresh impact in the original. I was unprepared for my reaction to viewing Michelangelo's sculptures and Botticelli's Venus-on-the-half-shell. My knees went to jelly.

I suppose the feeling can be compared to the difference between listening to live music and recordings.
