High Concept

On this date in 1948, T. S. Eliot
won the Nobel Prize in Literature.

The 4x4 square

 Non ha l'ottimo artista in se alcun concetto,
Ch'un marmo solo in se non circoscriva
Col suo soverchio; e solo a quello arriva
La man che ubbidisce all'intelletto.
 
(The best artist has in himself no concept
in a single block of marble not contained;
only the hand obeying mind will find it.)
 
— Michelangelo, as quoted
by Erwin Panofsky in

Idea: A Concept in Art Theory
