A compact, coffee table book filled with glossy pages of select significant works of art, all styles with brief synopses. I browse through this treasure every now and then. While I have no background in art to say the least, it amazes me how these paintings and photographs, whether I find them beautiful or strange can affect me, so differently. For example, on page 262, Jean Francois Millet's The Angelus is a stunningly simple scene but evokes beauty, gratitude and even love between the couple, while on page 298, Francis Picabia's Portrait of a Doctor is odd, disturbing and not a picture I want floating around my mind. There are other paintings to which I find myself totally indifferent.
