About this deal

their idea of what nature should look like was largely derived from the paintings of Calude Lorraine” Each [technical] discovery in one direction creates a new difficulty somewhere else .. as soon as the new concept of making the picture a mirror of reality was adopted ..there was a danger that the new power of the artist would ruin his most precious gift of creating a pleasing satisfying whole” somewhere there remains the absurd feeling that what one does to the picture is done to the person it represents” [discussing the idea of damaging a photo of a friend]

Raphael has achieved constant movement throughout the picture, without letting it become restless or unbalanced .. supreme mastery of arranging his figures .. he did not copy any specific model but rather followed ‘a certain idea’ he had formed in his mind .. he deliberately used an imagined type of regular beauty” This pride of the cities, which vied with each other in securing the services of the greatest artists to beautify their buildings and to create lasting works of fame, was a great incentive to the masters to outdo each other – an incentive which did not exist to the same extent in the feudal countries of the North, where cities had much less independence and local pride”Hence Horace Walpole’s Strawberry Hill country house, that dramatically abandons the norm of a Palladian villa

On a woman choosing a hat –“it always has something to do with the way she sees herself and wants others to see her” the Pantheon is the only temple of classical antiquity which has always remained a place of worship” but for the arts to flourish .. there should be enough people willing to buy paintings or sculptures by living artists”the spirit of Chinese landscape paintings .. also comes so close to the idea of poetry” 025 Permanent Revolution: The 19th century One reason for this bias is that less is lost in the illustration of a painting than in that of a round sculpture, let alone a monumental building. But he was also proud of his understanding of Italian tradition an “wrote a book, which he called ‘The Analysis of Beauty’, to explain the idea that an undulating line will always be more beautiful than an angular one” if Morris had been right in thinking that the machine could never successfullu emulate the work of human hands, the solution was obviously to find out what the machine could do and to regulate our designs accoridngly”
