When teaching photography, I try to use Dan Brown to show more important elements. Admittedly, I never read Brown, so I have to wait that he pops up in the conversation with students. Then it is easy to explain that the presence of Ws in paintings is not a mystic sign but rather a mode of composition and organisation of space that can be easily deconstructed & understood.

Hopefully, the message gets through!

I really laughed on reading your words that Dan Brown has nudged Panofsky off the Art History shelves! I was in Edinburgh last year and enjoyed seeing the Poussin Seven Sacrament series there for the first time. If only Dan Brown would set to work "decoding" those!

i think the Sacraments would be way over DB's head! Cheers- David
