UNDER THE INFLUENCE
What is beauty and how does it affect people who are far from art? Why do we go to the art gallery? How art affects ordinary workers who spend all day there. Mysteriously all people in contact with art in a museum or gallery become beautiful. Thoughtful and inspirational faces of visitors can often be seen in the Hermitage, and workers sitting next to paintings or sculptures often take similar poses, and even their faces are somewhat reminiscent of paintings located nearby. Perhaps this proves the influence of art.
