30 Years On, I think that “Postliberal” sums it up best

I don't like pen-and-ink drawings all that much. This one is by
Dürer, a Madonna and Child.
Artists seem to like them, or at least, I remember that art students did. I think I see the attraction of crosshatching or otherwise creating shading and highlighting with line. There would be a puzzle to work out each time, and as one's skill improved, more would be available to try.
But I don't find the end results attractive. Intriguing, impressive, yes. But they leave me cold. This will come up shortly when I review Bandersnatch, a new book by Diana Pavlac Glyer.
