How to Interpret Visual Art


How to Interpret Visual Art

“The most important mechanism  for interpreting visual art is your own eyes and your ability to really see and to really look…..Go, stand in front of the work of art, literally, physically,  look at it. Walk around it, look at its texture, look at its colour…”

Saint Catherine of Alexandria (c. 1598)  by the Italian Baroque master Caravaggio in the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection of Madrid.


Here is a short 15 min podcast that I made during a lecture I gave at the IF Project in London on 'how to interpet visual art'
