‘Like long-distance travel, art history can provide
a different set of circumstances that allows us,
even stimulates us, to reflect on present
circumstances with clearer vision’
(Addiss, S. & Erickson, M., 1993. Art History and Education, University of
Illinois Press)

‘Visual interpretation depends on the pleasure,
thrills, fascination, wonder, fear or revulsion
of the person looking at the images and then
writing about them. Successful interpretation
depends on passionate engagement with what
you see.’
(Rose, D.G., 2006. Visual Methodologies: An Introduction to the
Interpretation of Visual Materials: Sage Publications)
