Slog: News & Arts

RSS icon Comments on Your Sadness Is Drunk


Jen, you must share the reasons for your love of Simon Schama with me sometime. I tried to watch an installment of The Power of Art, and within the first ten minutes, he'd made enough painful statements to repel me forever.

Haven't seen The Power of Art, but I have enjoyed some of Schama's stuff in The New Yorker. I loved his treatise of the French Revolution, Citizens.

I enjoy Schama's books, especially The Embarassment of Riches (on the Dutch golden age) and Rembrandt's Eyes, but I had to turn off The Power of Art after about 2 minutes. It reminded me of a glossed-up version of the horrible, cheesy BBC history of art programs my high school art history teacher made us watch when he didn't want to teach.

Thats because Jen only likes glossed-up versions of horrible cheesy art!
