.PREFACE
IX
What is an artist's life ?
A time when you are dependent on others —
A time when others are dependent on you!
A time when the populace despises you —
A time when you despise the populace!
A time when the artist knocks in vain at the gates
of Art — A time when Art shelters the artist! A time when money insults the artist — A time when the artist insults money! A time when the work of an artist is obtainable for
a few cents, A time when untold millions could not purchase
that same work! A time when, through the fault of the nation, artists
perish — A time when, through the lack of artists, the nation
perishes! A time when your native town makes your reputa­tion — A time when you make the reputation of your
town! A time when, being envied by too many, you
suffer — A time when, being envied by too few, you suffer! A time when you are a unit — A time when you are multiple! A time when you will specialize — A time when you will universalize! A time when you will be the prisoner of your
formula — A time when you will escape from your formula!
