Two weeks ago my wife came home from the library with a bbc show: The Private Life of a Masterpiece. The show dissects the author, the piece, the reaction, and how the work became a masterpiece. It's a fascinating look at art. Of particular interest is how these paintings became famous because most of the paintings were painted for a private audience. It makes me wonder what masterpieces we claim today will fade into the background. Anyway, go netflix it.
