Abstract/Description: "Of all the spoken and written words that each of us submits to during the course of our lives, those pronouncements which most nearly pattern themselves to our mold are those we most cherish. For whatever reasons, certain phrases or statements are inexorably held and blended with our nature until we are forced to admit them as part of ourselves. How many times does one pick up a book and read, only to find oneself nodding in assent to each line as though to say, yes that is exactly as I would put it. And certainly the artist is no exception in this respect. Volumes depicting every conceivable aspect of the subject repose in our libraries ready to argue, edify, verify, or simplify the art of painting. Within this vast accumulation one is bound to be smitten. Whether they be philosophical arguments of learned historians or the impassioned beliefs of the artists themselves certain statements will seem so in harmony with what we accept as our own thoughts that they seem not merely a duplication but a verification of our thoughts. When the authority has the advantage of having withstood the test of several centuries without losing face we are even more apt to justify our convictions in this way. Be that as it may, it is difficult not to summon up the best authorities available in an effort to bolster one's own position"--Introduction.
