The author responds to the essay "The Melancholy Art," by Michael Ann Holly. He agrees that a proper historic appreciation of art is made impossible by an object's age and removal from its initial time and place. He also refers to Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's ideas of "the Absolute," and Sigmund Freud's ideas regarding imagery.
