Q: does it matter where an artist lives and works?

A: For the artist, geography is destiny. If Money had been living in Stockholm instead of Paris, I doubt he would have become the master of Impressionism. Something in the air in late 19th-century Pairs miraculously led to Impressionism. Something similar happened here in Washington in the late 1950’s. I don’t think it’s possible to create major art today in Santa Fe, but then I don’t profess to understand the dynamics of the phenomenon.
