The book’s collection of paintings comes with some pithy one-liners prompting the reader to pay attention to important aspects of the paintings, especially the emotional aspect of it. For example, a question like, “Is the white bull sad or angry?”  serves as a gentle nudge to notice the facial expression and notice the body posture of the animal.
