"For all their differences, the classicists and the romantics held one conviction in common, and it was a basic one: they thought of life and the world as a mystery that could be explored to discover the reason for man's existence. Niether doubted the assumption that we are here for a reason and that our being is justified and meaningful. For both, nature--all the different facets of life, of the world--was what Delacroix called "a vocabulary" that could be used to study the mystery's solution. Classic or romantic the idealist assumes that within all the conficts and contradictions, all the ambiguities and confusions of life, somewhere there is a harmony, a discoverable truth, by which man can understand the fact that he exists . . . . Seurat and Cézanne were painters within the classical tradition by its most inclusive definition: they believed that the chaotic material of human experience could be clarified and universalized, and that the means of effecting this transmutation could be discovered through the analysis of form and structure. The fact that their forms were so innovational--especially Cézanne's--makes them no less classical. It simply demonstrates that the classical spirit need not depend for expression on images of gods and heroes foreign to the modern world, but may assume forms as original as those the gods and heroes had been when the classical Greeks invented them so long ago . . . . " (From: Canaday, John.
Mainstreams of Modern Art. New York: Simon and Schustesr. 1961.)


"The wind, the color of the sky, the trees around --the building is not done only to be the most beautiful," he said. "It's done to give advantage to the surroundings. It's a dialogue." (Jean Nouvel - "French Architect Wins Pritzker Prize" - NYTimes 3/31/08)
