Anna Moszynska's letter ("Of course art is the heart", 5 October) was illustrated by a curious choice of picture: Fountain by Marcel Duchamp. The letter praised your feature "The fourth R" (21 September), which argued that art, craft and design should be at the core of the secondary curriculum. So couldn't you have picked an uplifting image, perhaps a clever work of hand and eye craft such as Auguste Rodin's The Thinker?
