"...we are all of us living under conditions which make a strong love of beauty very rare." Thomas Horsfall, The Study of Beauty 1883The exhibition was co-curated by children from a local school, complete with their own imaginative observations on the artworks selected. I found the exhibition really quite moving and inspirational, perhaps because of my own experiences of teaching.
"If we have a strong love of beauty, the most beautiful things we see become part of ourselves." Thomas Horsfall, The Study of Beauty, 1883
I love this photograph (above) of the Nature Study Room at the Art Museum, complete with aviary. What a wonderful setting for teaching drawing.
