Re: Photography in Museums - a metaphysical question

I have seen some Renaissance silverpoint and it is extremely delicate. It would have been such a treat to see some of Dürer's silverpoint works.

You go to a gallery to see a painting, and I like to get up close and see the texture of the paint. And then move back to see the whole. And you want to experience the scale. You can only take in so much in an afternoon or so. I like to spend time with a few works rather than glancing at everything. Maybe that's why people take photographs... it simply gets too much after a while.
