The strange case of the Baroness
By Abel Cervantes
The history of art that we have been taught is boring. The names that make it up
are generally great figures to admire. Similarly, the pieces of the canon of art
stand out for an unattainable beauty or a wonderful halo to which viewers should
appreciate with absolute respect and amazement. However, history is boring not
because of the events that make it up but because of the narratives that contain it
in books, magazines, museums and art fairs.
