Curiosity meets art – Single Image Sundays

Curiosity meets art by rsmithing

Young boy takes an interest in an older gentleman’s drawing of a sculpture. Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC. Detail here.

I snapped this earlier in the year on a visit to the museum. The man was rendering a highly detailed drawing of a sculpture when the boy stopped to check it out. It was great seeing the man directly engage the boy’s curiosity – two personalities growing for a moment toward each other, through art.

    Hi Richard. I love your photo. Children are so open to art, especially how it’s made. And they have no problem, I’ve found, telling you exactly what they like. Thanks for the ping back!

      Kecia, you’re so right. I’ve always thought there’s something so pure in the way a child dances, draws or experiences something creative. Thanks for commenting!
