Your text is an evocative piece written by an art lover and as such it undoubtedly has its merits. But as someone who has a rather more sober attitude to art and artists, I tend to see things a bit differently. I'm not quite sure to what extent you buy into the rather romantic view of what art is (or isn't) put forth by Molly.
You refer to art as a form of propaganda, which some of it is, but you don't come back to that, your starting point, in your text. Unless, of course, your being overwhelmed by what you saw is a function of said propaganda.
Also, I'm convinced that it is indeed possible to talk about art with a little more precision than you do in your piece, for example by leaving out "rumours" and anecdotes about the artist. There's more, but I'm not inclined to start a lengthy discussion on here. If you're interested, PM me.
