Being well fed

“The contemplation of great pictures gives us a grateful sense of being well fed.  We want to say some sort of grace . . . [A picture] has to be contemplated with the mind and the heart.  It has to be savored, played with, patiently and acutely analyzed, if it is to yield the food of its meaning.”  (John Drury)
