Most figurative art was never wholly itself, but came accompanied by oral and written versions, not only about context but also about successive actions. A specific moment always narrated the arc of other moments. It was interesting to discover support and scaffolding in sacred stories and myths, and slowly to analyze how modern art, seemingly freed from narrative, actually carried its own myths about fracturing and disjunction into each isolated image.
