Sketchbooks at the Fogg

I'm hoping I can fit in a trip to Boston before this exhibit at the Fogg Museum in Cambridge closes. But if not, it's possible to view the whole thing on line. Of course there's no substitute for the real thing, especially with something as intimate and tactile as a sketchbook, but it seems to me that if you go there you're going to be limited to seeing just a few pages at a time, right? In the virtual exhibit you get to see every page of every sketchbook. I love this trend for museums and galleries to make their collections digitally available.

Art is a useless expression of liberalism. Those talents would be better spent designing "a better mousetrap" that would make us all rich and make the world a kinder gentler place.

I love the idea of on-line exhibits. I'm sure it's much better in person, as most things are, but better on-line than not at all! Thanks for the tip.
