Art and being ...

... Charlotte Salomon’s “antidotes to indifference” | The Book Haven.

For those who don’t know the background, Salomon (1917-43) was a young German Jewish artist, hiding in the south of France after the Nazi takeover. Between 1940 and 1942, she worked feverishly, often without stopping to eat or sleep, to produce about 1300 paintings.

  1. I absolutely agree that art is an antidote to indifference. At its best, it can even be redemptive of suffering. So, this was great to find out about. Thanks.
