"Alles Ständische und Stehende verdampft, alles Heilige wird entweiht"

Joseph Paxton (1803-1865), "Palácio de Cristal", 1851. Fotografia de c. 1928

"All fixed, fast frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices and opinions, are swept away, all new-formed ones become antiquated before they can ossify. All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real condition of life and his relations with his kind".
Karl Marx (1818-1883), Friedrich Engels (1820-1895), Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei [Manifesto do Partido Comunista], Londres, 21 de Fevereiro de 1848. Tradução inglesa de Samuel Moore, 1888

"There are no limits in nature, and neither can there be in a work of art. You would thus obtain the atmosphere that sorrounds the figure, the color that animates it, and the perspective that puts it in its place.
When I do a portrait, I cannot limit it to the lines of the head since this head belongs to a body; it is in an environment that has an influence on it, it makes part of a whole I cannot suppress.
(...) Nothing is material in space."
Medardo Rosso (1858-1928), citado por Edmond Claris, De l'Impression en Sculpture, Paris, Editions de La Nouvelle Revue, 1902. Tradução no catálogo Medardo Rosso, Düsseldorf, Richter Verlag, s.d [2004], pág. 126 (existe no C.D.)

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), "El Aficionado Sorgues / El Torero", 1912, óleo sobre tela, 135 x 82 cm, Museu de Arte de Basileia
