Thoughts at the halfway point of Old Masters

This is a stream of thought and opinion that covers the subjects of art and culture. what is great art and what is culture when most of what is consumed is state backed?

These questions are raised by one old man as he recounts the opinions of his old friend the critic Reger who he waits to meet. As the book covers the meeting that the two men had in a Viennese museum the day before it introduces you to Reger and his life which has been one of visiting the museum every other day.

Despite his continued support of art and culture it becomes clear that Reger has a low opinion of of mainstream art and literature. But quite why he has disrupted the routine to bring his friend back for a second day and quite what he plans to say today is far from clear.

review will follow on completion…
