Musée Imaginaire

  Musée imaginaire (‘museum without walls’) was André Malraux\'s phrase for the vast number of photographic reproductions of works of art available to modern readers—the world\'s art not scattered inaccessibly in buildings, but available between the covers of a book. Malraux teased out the pros and cons of such second-hand availability, and his views have been broadened since to cover the whole weight of past culture, which modern reproductive techniques make cheaply available. In fine art, literature and music especially, it is a more plentiful resource than has been available to any previous generation, and its accessibility affects both the creators of new works, and their audience, in ways which have yet to be assessed.
