ART FOR ART’S SAKE

“Works of art, in my opinion, are the only objects in the material universe to possess internal order, and that is why, though I don’t believe that only art matters, I do believe in Art for Art’s sake.”

—  E. M. Forster,  British novelist (1879 – 1970)

English novelist, short story writer, essayist and librettist. He is known best for his ironic and well-plotted novels examining class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th-century British society. Forster’s humanistic impulse toward understanding and sympathy may be aptly summed up in the epigraph to his 1910 novel Howards End: “Only connect … “. His 1908 novel,  A Room with a View, is his most optimistic work, while A Passage to India (1924) brought him his greatest success.

THE TEST OF ART

“The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good.”

Here is a still photo a very interesting place in Italy called “Temples of Humankind” .  This is an underground construction excavated by hand by the citizens of spiritual community of Damanhur.  Some call it the ‘Eighth wonder of the world’.  The Temple Halls are an underground work of art, a subterranean cathedral created entirely by hand and dedicated to the divine nature of humanity.  You can take a “virtual tour” of these amazing temples here:   http://www.thetemples.org/tour/
