After the Art – Issue 11 – March 2021

Welcome to After the Art’s eleventh issue.

We hope you enjoy these four essays:

“Searching for memory in Jonathan Borofsky’s I dreamed I asked my father what the matter was and he said his tooth was bleeding and Louise Glück’s ‘Radium'” by Jessica Handler

“A Book, a Painting, a Fountain” by MaureenTeresa McCarthy

“The Man Who Breathed Art” by Karen McCall

“Sparrow Dance Spontaneity” by Stephen O’Connor

We’ve also started a Facebook page, which you can follow for posts about future issues as well as exhibits, articles, books, essays, and sites that might be of interest.

After the Art publishes personal review essays that explore the ways reading and art enrich each other.

Because of the pandemic, most museums are closed.  But here is a list of museums that have extensive online collections:

Brera Pinacoteca – Milan

Uffizi Gallery – Florence

Vatican Museums – Rome…/collezio…/catalogo-online.html

Archaeological Museum – Athens

Prado – Madrid

Louvre – Paris

British Museum – London

Metropolitan Museum – New York

Hermitage – Saint Petersburg

National Gallery of Art – Washington

We’d love to hear how looking at art (online) and reading (at home) can enrich each other even (especially?) during this time of physical distancing.

If you’re interested in submitting, please read our guidelines.
