“Spending an idle morning watching people look at art is hardly a scientific experiment, but it rekindles a perennial question: What exactly are we looking for when we roam as tourists around museums?

It was like a mini art class for a few hours. He started the tour by offering an out: He was going to show us less than the other tour guides would, but he’d spend more time discussing each one.

I was pretty happy that we happened to get his tour.
