George Edward Woodberry
I find the aesthetics of the 20th century hopelessly barren.

It's for all the women who embrace my aesthetic, but can't afford a Vera Wang dress. If women can get anything out of it - a little bit of me or a lot of me, that's what's important.
As writers and readers, as sinners and citizens, our realism and our aesthetic sense make us wary of crediting the positive note.
While a large segment of the art world has obsessed over a tiny number of stars and their prices, an aesthetic shift has been occurring. It's not a movement - movements are more sure of themselves.

Art is an invention of aesthetics, which in turn is an invention of philosophers... What we call art is a game.
I like anything with my face on it, just from an aesthetic point of view.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
