  • Quite like the case in the Sciences, commentators of the Arts, be it art critics or artists themselves, tend to nourish the dual idea of a continuous progress and of perfection actually being attained in the contemporary state. This tendency has been particularly true in the most self-confident ages, such as the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. Vasari’s “Lives” or Cellini’s autobiography most certainly represent orgies in human pride of the individual or collective achievements.
