Introduction "Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision-it is the seeing of the thing that makes it so." - Charles W. Hawthorne - ....................................................... "One of the functions of art is to remind us of common humanity. The artist, like the priest, can sometimes remind us that we are bound by an obligation to one another stronger and more lasting than the bonds of politics or economics." - John Manchip White, Diego Velazquez: Painter and Courtier - .......................................................... "To defend an artist as original says little about his work except that it is in some way different from what preceded it. As such, originality itself is rarely a strong defense, for it is born more of admiration for audacity and perseverance than necessarily of understanding." - James H. Rubin, Manet's Silence and the Poetics of Bouquets -
