commented on Art Museums Should Be Therapists, Not Art History Teachers
@1, I actually think mr. De Botton is trying to make art more accessible to your brother, not more confounding. My understanding of his approach, from reading his books, is that museums do a disservice when they merely note date and media. I always appreciate added context; it doesn't necessarily have to be interpretive or limiting.

@ Richard Mann, I expect you have done this already but just in case, have you blanketed that area with your appeal attached to photos of a comparable make of car? Unless it was an infrequent visitor to the commercial area, could be somebody will recognize it. Good luck!

@49, my 50 yr old husband bikes a 20+ mile commute every day between Beacon Hill and Northgate, and I am extremely grateful for a few bike lanes which mean he will return home alive every night. "Having to drive" is a mindset, not an objective reality. And it is "lo and behold" , not "low and behold".
