The Lonely Palette
About This Show
Welcome to The Lonely Palette, the podcast that returns art history to the masses, one painting at a time. Each episode, host Tamar Avishai picks a painting du jour, interviews unsuspecting museum visitors in front of it, and then dives deeply into the object, the movement, the social context, and anything and everything else that will make it as neat to you as it is to her.

Ep. 31 - Hiroshi Sugimoto's "Byrd Theater, Richmond, 1993" (1993)
Trying to capture time in art is like trying to pin a wave upon the sand or hold a moonbeam in your hand. So leave it to Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto to do it so effectively by taking us to the Golden Age of Cinema.
"Seeking Stillness" is on view at the MFA, Boston until September 3, 2018.
