Did you know that Beauty has actually been widely researched as a topic by many (!) scholars? It’s actually something not too abstract to grasp – and George Santayana, a philosopher who lived in the 19th century, was one of the firsts who defied the assumption that beauty is something God-given and divine, it is actually something that can be explained psychologically. He wrote a whole book on how people are sensing the beautiful and called it “The Sense of Beauty – Being the Outline of Aesthetic Theory”. That sounds quite dry admittedly, but let me try to sum it up for you in some easier words. This is the first part on summing up Santayana’s work that might let you understand the beautiful, the beauty you see, hear, feel –sense—around you.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
We from artistravel international wish you a merry Christmas time!

This year has been a lot, let’s be real. It was challenging for pretty much all of us. We, the artistravel team, have been no exception.
