Still Life with Oysters and Lemon: On Objects and Intimacy - Mark Doty Perhaps this type of writing is an acquired taste. It is not, at any rate, a taste I have ever acquired. It has very little to do with art or with painting or with the Dutch - it is subjective (and hence, quite arbitrary) and self-indulgent, and much of it taken up with rather uninteresting memories of his old aunts in Tennessee. It is about mood, and not insight. Just my opinion, of course.
