Religion and Art

Now that it has become clear that Gaddis is definitely looking at some of the connections between religion and art, I think it is time for this survey, conducted in 1969. Again, i am turning to John Berger's Ways of Seeing.

Of the places listed below, which does a museum remind you of most?

Manual Workers White Collar Professional/Management
Church 66% 45% 30.5%
Library 09% 34% 28%

In the words of Berger, this "indicates what the idea of an art gallery suggests to each social class."
