Lansing shares her perspective on paintings by Worthington Whittredge and Ralph Earl that reveals what more we can learn about art by considering it as a special kind of material object. How do the physical characteristics of these paintings and of the items depicted in the compositions suggest deeper meanings for each work of art?
