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.
