The fine arts -
explain, reveal, meditate upon

In school we had "art history"
as a subject. On holidays,
we have often admired
works of art and visited museums.

In museum we often stand dumbfounded
before large pictures,
but also small masterpieces
often cause our hearts
to leap as well.

This is why this homepage
was created: Experiencing
and sharing art through
meditation and encounter.

Not in a professional academic sense, but still factual, 
practical and proven.
