This is where my current sig quote came from:
Alain de Botton on Art Is Therapy in the Rijksmuseum makes a lot of very sweeping statements, but still good for a listen IMHO

Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart go together.

I like them! Very different and, given how money is itself abstract, very appropriate, too! :P

Here is another Vimeo link, I apologise to anyone that has difficulty opening these:
Eric Kandel on ‘What is Art for?’
Mostly about portraiture and faces.


Extract from Eric Kandel's book:
Excerpt from 'Reductionism in Art and Brain'
Mostly about 'top down' and 'bottom up' thinking when engaging with art.
