- Matthew Stone: What do you have faith in?
Sir Norman Rosenthal: Love, art, music and letters.
NR: By converting everyone in the world to love, art and music.
NR: I believe in the ephemeral, which is why I like making exhibitions. They disappear as everything will sooner or later.
NR: I don’t really believe in the concept of best, except at the subjective moment of confrontation with a work of art when maybe there is an illusion of “best”. My tastes in art happen to be very eclectic as they also are in music.
So one minute before doing this little blog for you I was listening to Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations and if everybody would listen to that simultaneously it would change the world for the better, but equally it might be a drawing or a social sculpture of Joseph Beuys.
