RADIO PROGRAM No. 29 - How Well Do You See?

HOST: There's a good deal of interest in art today. A traveling exhibition of Van Gogh's paintings drew crowds of more than one hundred and twenty thousand people in Boston. Last spring in New York City nine art galleries held an exhibition of the works of Picasso. It seems that more people go to art exhibits today than ever before. Why is this?

People have been learning to look deeper, to see a little more intelligently, the values the artist feels and wishes to convey. This calls for discernment.

The American painter and teacher, Robert Henri, expressed this thought when he said: "There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom" [The Art Spirit, J. B. Lippincott Company, Publishers].
