Based on a story by Marguerite Yourcenar.....Whom I first read over twenty-five years ago. I have not read her lately. But I have all her books.I think I'll leaf through them again tonight.
Yes, based on a story from the "Oriental Tales" by Marguerite Antoinette Jeanne Marie Ghislaine Cleenewerck de Crayencour (Yourcenar)Damn, you are a well read little Dutchman!
Wow....I have to think about that clip a lot longer before I decide how I feel about it...
I'm not sure that the Stendahl Syndrome is exactly what the boy meant when he said "They're not the sort of people to get lost in a painting." The Stendahl syndrome sounds like symptoms of shock or being overwhelmed. People who get lost in a painting aren't dizzy or fainting - they're actually inside the painting, living it and trying to figure it out. It is an interesting commentary on the value of the aesthetic though.
