From the PublisherMakoto Fujimura
“It isn't too often that we get a glimpse into a behind-the-scenes relationship between a patron of art and an artist. In this case, Walter Hansen and Bruce Herman have journeyed together as a theologian and a cultural commentator, two men with cultural stewardship as a goal for the next generation. Bruce Herman is one of the wisest practitioners of art today, and Walter Hansen one of the key influencers and patrons of Christians in the arts. This book is a treasure chest full of wisdom for those serving in the world of art and faith -- it's a work of deep friendship and conversation originating from the highest realm of integrity.”
author of Dove Descending: A Journey into T.S. Eliot's 'Four Quartets'
“This is not a book for the fainthearted. It is searching; demanding; exhilarating. It will take you into the glorious and ancient questions that attend Art -- but in a way that we of the laity can immediately grasp. This exchange between two intelligent men, one the artist and the other the patron (it takes one back to the Renaissance) will both instruct and delight -- docere et delectare.”
Daniel A. Siedell
“Since the fifteenth century, patrons -- collectors, critics, and dealers -- have played a crucial but often overlooked role in the development of artists' work. In Through Your Eyes artist Bruce Herman and collector Walter Hansen allow us privileged access into this unique relationship between an artist and a collector, a relationship born from a single question: 'What do you see?'”
