Open Windows. Online periodical of the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

When describing his method of perspective in his treatise De Pictura, Leon Battista Alberti compared a painting with an aperta finestra, an open window. Extending this Albertian metaphor beyond the strictly optical, the new on-line periodical of the Thyssen-Bornemisza collections aims to open a window onto a different world through each work of art.
