The Value Of Cotswold Art

All these images help to illustrate my "Cotswold Guidebook", bar the last one, and that adorns my kitchen wall painted by my 15-year old daughter, Flora. The quotes are a little bit of fun provided by John Ruskin and Oscar Wilde. So what is Art? Can a photograph be considered Art? Let the debate begin....

"Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing." Oscar Wilde. This artist's pictures sell for £35,000+

"The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most." John Ruskin

"No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did he would cease to be an artist."
Oscar Wilde

"Everything that you can see in the world around you presents itself to your eyes only as an arrangement of patches of different colors." John Ruskin

"The true mystery in the world is the visible, not the invisible." Oscar Wilde
