it was amazing
Read in June, 2008

Although this book is officially categorized as art theory or criticism it is not nearly as dull as the label implies. I found Henri to be an engaging writer and a very lucid one. Much of what is hear is widely applicable to life, and not just painting etc, and I came to see this more as a work of philosophy. Henri deals with how to foster meaningful interactions with the world we live in. There is a lot of wisdom in here and my copy is worn and marked in my attempt to capture it all. One of the best pieces of non-fiction I have ever read.
