Art Appreciation

"For art comes to you proposing frankly to give nothing
but the highest quality to your moments as they pass,
and simply for those moments' sake."

from The Renaissance: Studies in Art and Poetry
by Walter Pater, 1839 - 94
English Literary & Art Critic

The Glorification of Saint Dominic
by Fra Angelico, 1395 - 1455
Artist of the Early Italian Renaissance

Thanks to my friend Ann de Forest at Obscolescing,
who suggested that I share a painting by Fra Angelico!
