I recently read Michael Findlay’s Seeing Slowly: Looking at Modern Art. I’ve been struggling to write a review for a few weeks, so I decided not to. Findlay is an international art dealer, and this book is about his method of enjoying modern and contemporary art. I disagree with him about a fair few things, but I think that his ideas are worth considering if you’re interested (as I am) in figuring out the best ways to enjoy art.

Alexandra Kiely, aka A Scholarly Skater, is an art historian based in the northeastern United States. She loves wandering down the dark and dusty corners of art history and wholeheartedly believes in visual art's ability to enrich every person's life.
Her favorite periods of art history are 19th-century American painting and medieval European art and architecture. When she not looking at, reading about, writing about, or teaching art, she's probably ice dancing or reading.
