As an art historian I’m a passionate amateur. I love looking at art, thinking about art, and helping other people have a blast looking at it, too. I offer private tours of New York City art, post regularly on art-related topics (see the Obsessions tag cloud at lower right), and have a stack of books and essays on Amazon, this site, and my original site, ForgottenDelights.com.
What shall we talk about?
Here are the sort of questions that fascinate me:
- How do you go from a gut reaction to thinking about art – and why would you bother?
- Why is abstract art a waste of canvas, marble, bronze, neon tubing, chickenwire …?
- How can I find art that I’ll enjoy?
Come on a tour and ask all the questions you like!
