The question of a final criterion for the appreciation of art is one that

perpetually recurs to those interested in any sort of aesthetic endeavor.

Mr. John Addington Symonds, in a chapter of 'The Renaissance in Italy'

treating of the Bolognese school of painting, which once had so great

cry, and was vaunted the supreme exemplar of the grand style, but which

he now believes fallen into lasting contempt for its emptiness and

soullessness, seeks to determine whether there can be an enduring

criterion or not; and his conclusion is applicable to literature as to

the other arts. "Our hope, " he says, "with regard to the unity of taste

in the future then is, that all sentimental or academical seekings after

the ideal having been abandoned, momentary theories founded upon

idiosyncratic or temporary partialities exploded, and nothing accepted

but what is solid and positive, the scientific spirit shall make men

progressively more and more conscious of these 'bleibende Verhaltnisse, '

more and more capable of living in the whole; also, that in proportion as

we gain a firmer hold upon our own place in the world, we shall come to

comprehend with more instinctive certitude what is simple, natural, and

honest, welcoming with gladness all artistic products that exhibit these

qualities. The perception of the enlightened man will then be the task

of a healthy person who has made himself acquainted with the laws of

evolution in art and in society, and is able to test the excellence of

work in any stage from immaturity to decadence by discerning what there

is of truth, sincerity, and natural vigor in it."
