In his book Refractions: A Journey of Faith, Art, and Culture, the contemporary Japanese-American painter Makoto Fujimura describes an experience of attending a Fra Angelico exhibit at the Met. Staggered by art from the 15th century, he posed to himself the "500 year question": What makes it possible for art to continue to have an impact five centuries after it was created.
