Beauty In Art Lecture

I enjoyed watching this 'illustrated' TED lecture by Dennis Dutton.
It discusses the role of beauty in art from a Darwinian perspective.
Even though it is not specifically about printmaking,
it is interesting to watch just for the illustrations.

Dennis is an art theorist from Christchurch, and the author of "The Art Instinct".
This video was made in collaboration with animator Andrew Par.

It's only 15 minutes long, so grab a coffee...
What do you think???
