Previous Section   151. A GLASS EYE   Next Section

A Glass Eye.  The tendency of a talent towards moral subjects, characters, motives, towards the "beautiful soul" of the work of art, is often only a glass eye put on by the artist who lacks a beautiful soul.  It may result, though rarely, that his eye finally becomes living Nature, if indeed it be Nature with a somewhat troubled look.  But the ordinary result is that the whole world thinks it sees Nature where there is only cold glass.
