Güncel Notlar


Noah Charney’s The Museum of Lost Art is a heavily researched yet entertaining meditation upon the many ways works of art can suffer destruction and go missing (and sometimes be found again). The book is divided into chapters that discuss the various misfortunes that over many centuries have befallen works of art: some caused by man (War, Theft, Iconoclasm & Vandalism), others caused by nature (Accident, Acts of God). It becomes apparent that it is the very "lost-ness" of these pieces that is integral to their identity Lost artworks belong less to our world than to the land of myth Lost art can never disappoint A museum of lost art would contain more masterpieces than all existing museums, this book suggests.
