Excerpt from Concerning Painting: Considerations Theoretical and Historical

Yet there has seldom been a time when those who believe in the seriousness of art as one of the greatest and most permanent expressions of the human spirit have felt more intensely the need of sound thinking on art's problems. That epoch of civilization which we may call, roughly, the nineteenth century began with wars and revolutions. It is now ending with greater wars and greater revolutions. When peace comes again, and a new epoch begins, the world will again want art. What kind of art will it want and what kind of art will it get? It is not to be believed that nineteenth century naturalism or nineteenth-century individualism will satisfy it. If art cannot learn to express in the future, as it has done in the past, the highest aspirations and the deepest feelings of the age, then the age will learn to do without art.
