Power of images

July 18, 2008


While reading image/photo theory for my PhD (from now on referred to as “the bloody thing”), I came across some pearls of wisdom that I will randomly share. Consider the following one from 1614 encyclopedia entry on decoration of bedrooms. From The power of imagesby David Freedberg. Admittedly it is completely usless for “the bloody thing”.

    What an amazing piece of text.

    I bet many a wife knew what was coming when the pictures were uncovered!

    Too weird.
