Hello loyal readers!
First of all, I want to thank all of you so much for stopping by to read my articles, for all your nice comments, for making me one of your go-to art history websites, and for generally making me feel that people actually enjoy and benefit from the work I do here. I’m so very grateful for all of you!
Because of all that, I want to serve my readers better – to write the articles and publish the courses and guides that will have the most positive impact on all of you. So I’m starting the year by trying to better understand who reads my work and what topics they’re most interested in reading about. To that end, I’ve put together a short survey (only five questions), and I would appreciate any insights you’re willing to give there. And please remember that you can always comment on any of my posts to ask questions or request topics.
Thank you all so much!
