About: Laura Horan

I'm a sophomore at UCLA. I'm interested in the ways that art is used both aesthetically and emotionally, especially within the context of Byzantium—where the relationship between religion and the medium is so strong. In my free time I enjoy reading, visiting museums, and spending time with my family.

      Vermeer’s interiors make possible a sort of encounter in which the painting completely disappears in the viewing, and the viewer is what is seen into, and this is the key to Vermeer’s true design and the source of his work’s mystery.“
