About this product
- DescriptionPen Drawing. An Illustrated Treatise. By Charles D. Maginnis. Art, with its finite means, cant hope to record the infinite variety and complexity of Nature, and so contents itself with a partial statement, addressing this to the imagination for the full and perfect meaning. This inadequation, and the artificial adjustments which it involves, are tolerated by right of what is kwn as artistic convention; and as each art has its own particular limitations, so each has its own particular conventions. Sculpture reproduces the forms of Nature, but discards the color without any shock to our ideas of verity; Painting gives us the color, but t the third dimension, and we are satisfied; and Architecture is purely conventional, since it does t even aim at the imitation of natural form.
