The Last of its Kind

“What is d├ęcadence? It is the keenest sense of organic connection with the monumental legacy of the high culture of the past, along with the painfully proud awareness that we are the last of its kind.”
Viacheslav Ivanov and M. O. Gershenson, Perepiska iz Dvukh Uglov, 1921

Francisco Goya - The Dog - 1819

J. M. W. Turner - Three Seascapes - 1827
