Quotations: Max Dvořák

Art depends not only on the solution and development of formal issues and problems, but is also, and before anything else, an expression of the leading ideas of mankind, and the history of art, no less than the history of religion, philosophy, or poetry, is part of the general history of the spirit.
Max Dvořák - ‘Idealismus und Naturalismus in der gotischen Skulptur und Malerei’ (1918) - translation by RJ. Klawiter
