Museum Windows Art and context: Framing the experience

What is a window? Windows can be plainly utilitarian; they are also powerful symbols. Windows can represent the relationship of a structure to its environment. This photographic study explores those relationships as they are revealed in the windows of museums.

A museum provides an aesthetic experience. My observations examine the aesthetics of the sometimes peripheral, occasionally integral experiences of the natural and cultural contexts inherent in a museum’s setting.

This book presents a selection of museum windows. Some frame splendid views of nature or an urban setting. Some are opaque. Art and nature remain intimately connected and museums are never divorced from their surroundings. The intersection of art and nature is of great interest to me. I often find in museum windows surprising opportunities to examine that intersection.
