"Having eyes, they see not, and having ears, they hear not." The Scriptural phrase has a special application to those contemporary critics and thinkers who are never weary of lamenting the materialism, the want of artistic comprehension, which they declare to be the characteristics of our age. From the dawn of the century onwards, the decadence of art has been unceasingly bewailed; and yet, throughout the century, one glorious artist has succeeded another; undaunted by the scorn or indifference of their contemporaries, they have created a series of masterpieces, which some hundred years hence will entitle our epoch to rank as another Golden Age of art and poetry.
