img940 img941Good writing and good commentary are a bit like good wine, aged well and drinkable with a hint of understanding for the winemakers art, left on your tongue.

The book Transforming Vision slipped by me quasi unnoticed. It was published in 1994, and the more I read through it in anyone order the more I liked it. Pondering the wisdom of this or that writer or a painting, enjoying the various philosophical points of view, is like the difference between a Tokay and a Bordeaux or a Riesling and a Pinot Grigio. No, you do not have to be an expert on art, writing nor on wine to enjoy all of it.
