Literary Gallery: Maria Popova’s Book + Art Pairings January 19 2017
At their best, both books and visual works of art invite contemplation. The mind wanders like the eye wanders, with multiple layers of meaning and wonderment unpeeled through these wanderings. To place the two in dialogue around a thematic resonance only amplifies these contemplative revelations. – Maria Popova
