Excerpt from How to Enjoy Pictures The pictures specially selected as texts for study have been arranged, t according to the dates of their pro duction r according to schools of art, but according to subject, as evident at the first glance. Photographs direct from nature are t here considered at all. The pleasure we take in them is more akin to the interest we feel in our immediate, visible surroundings than to the interest feel (or may feel) in photographs from works of ar Through studying reproductions of 'artists' paintings, we come into touch t Simply with the re ected images of real things such as we see in the world about us, but with the thoughts and feelings, the joys, hopes, and aspirations, of some of the great men who have looked at the world and lived in it. If we can gradually learn to look with their clearer eyes and to see the beauty which delighted their more appreciative souls, our own world becomes larger and lovelier through that experience.
