William H Hunt quotes
" How far such symbolism is warranted depends upon its unobtrusiveness and its restriction within limits not destroying natural beauty. "

William H Hunt
" I agree that Ruskin has done much harm to counter balance much good in giving people the trick of talking about Art instead of really doing a little of it to enable them to understand. "

William H Hunt
" The forerunners and contemporaries of Tintoretto had consecrated the custom, to which he gave a larger value and more original meaning. "

William H Hunt
" There is no more reason why the features belonging to a picture should be distorted for the purpose of such imaginative suggestion than that the poet's metaphors should spoil his words for the ordinary uses of man. "

William H Hunt
" Tintoretto's meaning was expressed with no arbitrary or unnatural disturbance of the truth. "

William H Hunt
" When language was not transcendental enough to complete the meaning of a revelation, symbols were relied upon for heavenly teaching, and familiar images, chosen from the known, were made to mirror the unknown spiritual truth."
