I really enjoyed this documentary. I have a hard time “understanding” some modern art and have to admit that going to the Louvre or listening to classical music soothes my soul. I had the great pleasure of recently attending a concert put on by several youth orchestras. The music was mesmerizing. It was beautiful.
I remember when I went to Versailles a long time ago. There was a Jeff Coombs art exhibit on display. I had such a hard time reconciling the place with the art. This documentary explains it for me!
In a time when our world feels like it’s being pulled apart, creating beauty, to me, seems extremely important.
