The Flower and the Microscope: September 9, 2015

The two gifts, the gift of analysis, the gift of sensibility, that so often conflict, here enhance each other -- each contributes, neither dominates.  "The concordance we find in Cezanne between an intelligence rigorous, abstract and exacting to a degree, and a sensibility of extreme delicacy and quickness of response is here seen in masterly action."  The words are true of Roger Fry himself.  The flower has kept its color and the microscope its clarity.

Roger Fry (285)
