Quote Of The Day/Oct.22, 2010

Art consists of limitation.
The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame.
G. K. Chesterton

Odd quote, truly bizarre. Does Chesterton believe that the written word conveys more meaning, more beauty to the beholder?

Well, I feel the quote is about the context of what makes something true art.
It is how you frame it, whether it be a paragraph or a picture...the details and the presentation, the esthetic choicees define the art.
Chesterton was a real conservative actually and a fervent English Roman Catholic, but he was a great artist as a writer and I enjoy his work which never seems to age....
