Power of Music by William Sidney Mount

art overcomes artificial barriers

I LOVE THIS PAINTING

I love this painting.  It's simple, yet complex.  It must have been revolutionary in some circles.  It's still hopeful and optimistic, even though it's 160 some years old.  It says we aren't really different.  It says we have the same pleasures and joys. But it also says there are real gulfs in America. Therefore it is honest.
