Previous Section   146. HOW ART MAKES PARTISANS   Next Section

How Art makes Partisans.  Individual fine passages, an exciting general tenor, a moving and absorbing finale — so much of a work of art is accessible even to most laymen.  In an art period when it is desired to win over the great majority of the laymen to the side of the artists and to make a party perhaps for the very preservation of art, the creative artist will do well to offer nothing more than the above.  Then he will not be a squanderer of his strength, in spheres where no one is grateful to him.  For to perform the remaining functions, the imitation of Nature in her organic development and growth, would in that case be like sowing seeds in water.
