Art is a compromise between seeing and knowing. All art ought to be representational. The further it wanders from that mandate, the less it deserves to be called good.

I may come back and review this, or not. Berenson is something of a paradox here: an anti-modern curmudgeon who uses (coins?) the term "manquake."
