How to Enjoy Art – Ben Street
1 min read · 04 Feb 2022
Art historian Ben Street takes us on a tour of The National Gallery, London, looking at masterworks in the collection by Carlo Crivelli, Hans Memling and Édouard Manet. Rather than using specialist insight to read and decipher the works, Street focuses on a physical encounter with the paintings, arguing that anyone can find value and enjoyment in art without needing to know an abundance of extra historical information.
Every painting has the potential to have a different meaning depending upon who’s looking at it. And that is the joy of looking at art.
