Excerpt from Stories of the French Artists From Clouet to Delacroix
IN no country, perhaps, has art reﬂected the life and character of the nation to the extent that it has done in France, from which it follows that French art can never, except in certain of its phases, be so universally acceptable as that of Italy. And this because Italian art had a world-wide message to deliver, a message which has moulded thought and custom, and has done more to shape the destiny of modern art and thought than any other since that of the Greeks. A full-blooded and masculine art, whose fol lowers were not afraid to invade the highest realms of religious idealism and symbolism, and yet could grasp, as many of the Venetians did, the stern facts of materialism, was destined to.
