Last month I visited the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. The collections of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings are truly impressive. Sadly and bizarrely, many fellow visitors spend almost no time admiring and appreciating these masterpieces on canvas. Technology and human behaviour seem to have, for many, reduced museum and gallery visits to a series of tablet and mobile phone picture taking and ‘selfie’ opportunities. We can all learn from the greats, but it can take the investment of some time.
The German philosopher Schopenhauer said: Treat a work of art like a Prince. Let it speak to you first. Obviously, he did not have an iPhone.
