ABSTRACT
The author responds to the essay "The Melancholy Art," by Michael Ann Holly. He discusses the ephemeral nature of ideas that rise and fall within the canon of art history writings. He also discusses that fact that writing loses the immediacy of experience found in speech or in the moment of observing an object.
