ART THOUGHTS 6

Any great work of art... revives and readapts time and space, and the measure of its success is the extent to which it makes you an inhabitant of that world - the extent to which it invites you in and lets you breathe its strange, special air.  ~Leonard Bernstein, What Makes Opera Grand?




The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.  ~Aristotle
