Elliot is probably right ...

... from Terry Teachout's Almanac. A good painting requires as much attention and ocnentration as a good poem. The new trend toward huge shows - which turn art into vaudeville actually - leads people to go through a museum as if they were in a department store. Don't go to the blockbuster show. Go find a painting you love and spend some time with it. Then maybe find a new one to fall in love with.
