japonisme: internet as bible

25 March 2007

internet as bible

it's the begetting i'm talking about. a google alert leads one to a new blog which lists another blog which thanks another blog which credits yet another. even word of mouth is slower.

grateful enough today to discover mountshang.

follow his begats, then follow hers, to learn something more about this set of lithographs, amour, by maurice denis, from a show on offerings from the influential art dealer and publisher vollard currently at the art institute of chicago.

vollard seems to be, perhaps, an equivalent to bing or watanabe in their passion to show, publicize, and inspire the artists (or craftsmakers) of the day.

not surprisingly, and in case you're interested, we've already talked about denis several times in this blog: here, here, here, and here.

Sometimes I feel as though wandering through your blog is like waking up inside of a beautiful dream.
