Excerpt from The Gate of Appreciation: Studies in the Relation of Art to Life
There is a case for the outsider in reference to art. And I have tried here to state it. This book is an attempt to suggest the possible meaning of art to the ordinary man, to indi cate methods of approach to art, and to trace the way of appreciation. It is essentially a personal record, an account of my own ad ventures with the problem. The book does not pretend to finality; the results are true for me as far as I have gone. They may or may not be true for another. If they become true for another man, he is the one for whom the book was written. I do not apologize because the shelter here put together, in which I have found a certain comfort, is not a palace. Rude as the structure may be, any man is wel comed to it who may find solace there in an hour of need.
