“Perpetual modernness is the measure of merit in every work of art.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Trying to decide if you love a work of art is like trying to decide if you love a person, if you have to think about it, its not love.”
“What distinguishes modern art from the art of other ages is criticism.”
“The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.”
“Most of our modern portrait painters are doomed to absolute oblivion. They never paint what they see. They paint what the public sees, and the public never sees anything.”
“Nothing is so dangerous as being too modern; one is apt to grow old-fashioned quite suddenly”
“Modernity is the transient, the fleeting, the contingent; it is one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immovable.”
