Just winding down after a really busy week.
What really made my week was T.V. critic Matthew Collings virtually stopping by to comment on my piece about his Piero della Francesca programme. His interesting comments are below. I agree with all he says, especially his point about the continuity between pre-modern and modern art. Thanks to MC for stopping by. Who says that blogs don't get read by influential art history figures!
"The series is not academically naive, it's just not coming from an academic place (or not only). I've never been disillusioned with modern art, and in fact have always thought of modern and pre-modern as profoundly continuous. The discontinuity is between modern and a certain type of post-modern, namely populist institution post-modern The aim of the series is to criticise that kind of thing."
A couple of other things. Glennis McGregor has told me about her great site Renaissance for Real. It looks at the renaissance and the virtual amongst other things. Definitely worth bookmarking and exploring.
I was also contacted by Accredited Online Colleges who have an article on 50 Amazing Museum Exhibits You Can Enjoy Online.
Right, I'm off to get a beer, listen to some music and relax.
