Excerpt from Fra Bartolommeo
It helps us greatly, in comprehending a work, to have a clear idea of the kind of man who produced it; what were his characteristic and leading trains of thought, and, chieﬂy, what were the times in which he lived. M. Taine (lectures on Art, chap. I. P. Truly says: Just as there is a physical temperature (zone) which by its varia tions determines the appearance of this or that species of plant, so is there a moral temperature, which by its variations determines the appearance of this or that species of art.
Fra Bartolommeo, a monk living in an age of extra ordinary religious fervour, shows in his works earnest thought, intense religion, and a schooled imagination, which keeps his designs within the bounds of an austere rule, and his handling within the bonds of the traditions of his school.
