Daniel ArasseHistoires de peintures (history of paintings)


Hans Theys’ selection for his storefront.

“In this book, Arasse speaks admirably of Italian paintings, especially of the mystery of details invisible to the viewer, such as a buttonhole-shaped navel of Mary in an Annunciation hanging high in a Palazzo. Why would painters do such things? Arasse does not answer the question. Walter Swennen, consulted by me on this enigma, replied: ‘because they paint for God’.

I mention Daniel Arasse in this text about the work of Walter Swennen, written in 2016.” Hans Theys
