We did it! This is the end. The last day of our month-long trip looking at amazing art from around the world. I need to pick something special for our last one. Something that sums up the wonder and power of art. Something joyful and celebratory. Something like this one?
This is Book with Wings by Anselm Keifer. It is in one of my local museums, The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and it is just so wonderful. When they built the new building for the museum over 10 years ago, it seems they made this round room just for it. It fits so beautifully in the space.
It’s truly a triumphant artwork that makes us think about the power of reading, of knowledge, of education in our lives. Although it’s not specifically about art, I think it captures the importance of looking at and learning about art, so I will leave you with it to admire and think about on your own.
Thank you so much for following along. Here’s an index to all of the Art Around the World posts in case you missed any of them.
