Some photos of people looking at stuff in the Louvre from a book, here. (The page is in Russian, the book is Spanish, but the photos speak for themselves.)
I love it when art reverses the proscribed sightlines of a museum, like in WP Frith's Private View at the Royal Academy, or in the satirical prints of the Regency. As Ingrid Schaffner writes, they are paradoxically both 'taking in the pictures and modelling for one'.
The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
