Was he consumed by his demons, this Raphael of the Twentieth century? Or perhaps the 21st.? He was ahead by a century , to coin the Hip. The tragedy of his brief life is exceeded only by the triumph of his brief life as an important artist. A liberating, forever young master for the ages whose influence is so evident today, decades after his passing. We are just now beginning to figure him out- not that we ever will completely. My humble homage is quiet rather than loud. Subtle rather than in your face. Somewhere in his brief existence he may have enjoyed a moment like this.
