It is right and necessary that all men should have work to do which shall he worth doing
The purpose of applying art: to add beauty to the results of the work of man and to add pleasure to the work itself
Lover of beauty, pursued by the specter of death
Art as prophesy
A return to stained-glass grace
Querulous poet founds art movement
"Art is eternal, but life is short…"
Love of country and love of women
"If I am not grotesque I am nothing"
