he sounds sad.
Once again you inspire me. However, the UO's museum (Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art) is opening a show called "Faster, High, Farther: The Spirit of Track-and-Field Sports," and I don't think there's a single book or piece of information about running or javelin-ing that I want to convey to the overwhelmed-with-Olympic-Trials-trivia Eugene public. But if you know of any good sporty art history books, I guess I could give it a try. (And when the J-Schnitz's "Cuba Avant-Garde" hits the boards, watch out for the Revolutionary Fact of the Day.) OTOH, I suspect that only the Impressionists (and perhaps the Abstract Expressionists?) can inspire the kind of obsessive/devoted lit you're quoting. Oh, and Michelangelo, of course.
But anyway, thanks. Fun and interesting.
Jen--- I am not clear on why you said "here is his 'objective' view..."
Why use the word 'objective'? Did Bazille claim objectivity of some type in his art?
I don't really know anything about him, so what's up?
@3: It's from the excerpt:
‘Don’t worry,’ he assured his mother. ‘I bring to it all the necessary objectivity, don’t be alarmed.’
