Lovely ideas become immortal!

All Art Aspires Towards the Condition of Music

quote by Walter Pater

An essay on ‘The School of Giorgione’ (Fortnightly Review, 1877), added to the third edition (1888), contains Pater’s much-quoted maxim “All art constantly aspires towards the condition of music” (i.e. the arts seek to unify subject matter and form, and music is the only art in which subject and form are seemingly one). The final paragraphs of the 1868 William Morris essay were included as the book’s ‘Conclusion’.”
