The one Art Book to read

‘Art as Therapy’ by Alain de Botton and John Armstrong. Finally, a brilliant book tackling on the Question “What is Art for?”.

The answers given are valid and illuminating and questions like ‘Why have I just left this museum and feel underwhelmed or bewildered and / or inadequate and why the big experience I thought I would have didn’t happen’.

I know you have had these thoughts and whats wrong with me liking ‘pretty pictures’. Read the book!

“Art holds out the promise of inner wholeness” – Alain de Botton
