Grant Snider of Incidental Comics walks us down a path of encountering, exploring and even making art.
I vividly remember, many years ago, turning a corner at the Birmingham Museum of Art and seeing the enormous, majestic Dawn by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. It was stunning. I spent quite a bit of time later chasing down Bouguereaus when I heard that they were on public display.
I will not discount the aesthetic priorities of others, but to me, the Western tradition of art reached its zenith in the works of Bouguereau.
Which encounters with art have left a lasting impression on you?
