"When art is made new, we are made new with it," he wrote in the first volume of "The Meanings of Modern Art." "We have a sense of solidarity with our own time, and of psychic energies shared and redoubled, which is just about the most satisfying thing that life has to offer." The third volume starts with a French painter, Gustave Moreau, with one of his famous works from the middle of the period covered in the second volume, "Salome Dancing before Herod," 1876, he mainly covers non-French painters, and goes further back in history, to examine some of the darker themes in modern art.
