In Praise of Small Pots
Walking through the Louvre for the first time I am reminded that artists have always used scale to impress. I am confronted by the physicality of paintings I have known all my life as reproductions. Delacroix’s Liberty in all its tour de force towers over us taking the gallery by storm. It is then delightful to find that the Mona Lisa, one of the most famous images in the world, is quite diminutive.
