What exactly is 'ecphrasis'? We'll give you a dollar if you can tell us without looking it up!*

In today's Presentation of the Day, "Ecphrasis" from PKN Wellington Vol. 18Marco Sonzogni, author of the book "How to Write a Painting", explains what the word 'ecphrasis' means by showing us just how difficult it is to capture the feelings of a painting in words. He performs an interesting an experiment by asking artists of all different skill levels to create a drawing or painting based on a short, poetic description of a painting.
