Renaissance figure Alberti famously claimed that a painting should offer a perspective like one gets when looking out of a window.  FADA is taking Alberti’s metaphor literally with a selection of window views. During this month’s hectic entrance back to school and into fall’s busy schedule, let this post offer a contemplative escape.

When viewing an artwork, remember that art can both inspire and soothe (Science tells us so).  Whether opening up to a quaint garden scene or wondrous body of water setting, works with windows are ultimately conscious and inclusive of their viewers. Place yourself behind the window, and let the sensations of your imagination transport you!
