Summary
Using analogies from the drawings of children and the insane, as well as several important periods in art history, painter George Biddle engages his audience in a discussion of idea that the best art in any age represents a balance between a representational, extroverted style and a stylized, abstract, symbolic, introverted style. The conversation then moves on to a discussion of government involvement in art at the national level, which includes opinions on a proposed Fine Arts Bill, the Commission of Fine Arts, the WPA, and the role the government plays in art in other countries
