"The artist suspects that it is not the object nor the likeness of the object that he is working for, but a particle of life behind the visible. Here he comes face to face with the real things of life; no assistance can be given him, he cannot hire a boy in gold buttons to open the door to the Muse, nor a clerk nor an accountant to do the drudgery. He is alone with his problem and drifts away from superficial portrayals. After this he strives to find the spiritual meaning of things and to transmit the secret to the layman."
American architect Bernard Maybeck (1862-1957).
