Art Movies

girl with the pearl earing

I didn’t do art history at school, actually I didn’t do art  classes either but none of this matters because of yay the internet and the library.

I haven’t quite watched them all yet,  it’s a work
in progress. Of the ones I have seen, I loved some, was challenged by others,
sometimes I  found myself in tears, or with my nose pressed up to the telly.
But each time  there were connections and questions or inspiration.
