The Imperfections Of Great Art
"Even among the great masters, it is imperfection, not perfection, that is the normal condition of art, and the higher you aim, the more likely you are to miss. I'm not talking about the inconsistency of prolific but uneven artists ... The fact is that even the greatest of artists have been known to produce major works in which they nonetheless fail to realize their creative intentions with total certainty."
