White Wings by Wilfred Knox (A. D. Bell).

On an antique subject but painted in 1948.

" appreciate a work of art we need to bring with us nothing from life, no knowledge of its ideas and affairs, no familiarity with its emotions. Art transports us from the world of man's activity to a world of aesthetic exaltation. For a moment we are shut off from human interests; our anticipations and memories are arrested; we are lifted above the stream of life." Clive Bell, The Aesthetic Hypothesis.
