The Gift

  1. The work of art is a gift.
  2. Although a talent can be perfected through an effort of the will, no  effort in the world can cause its initial appearance. 
  3. The spirit of an artist’s gifts can wake our own.
  4. A gift that cannot be given away ceases to be a gift. The spirit of a gift is kept alive by its constant donation.

The work of an artist appeals to a part of our being which is itself a gift and not an acquisition.
