You Will Know Her By Her Song, Not By Her Plumage

Fig. 1. Joan Miró - Le chant du rossignol a minuit et la pluie matinale, 1959

'Twentieth-century art may start with nothing, but it flourishes by virtue of its belief in itself, in the possibility of control over what seems essentially uncontrollable, in the coherence of the inchoate, and in its ability to create its own values.'

T. S. Eliot
