"We may feel at this moment the sympathetic relationship with human desires and uncertainties to which the imaginative art of the younger generation aspires. It is not an art that could produce an object of 'virtu', a collector's piece, in its own day; but, like other valid expressions of European culture, it seeks to associate the beauty at which it aims with the less accessible channels of individual existence." p. 37
