Evidences Of Impressionism In The Music Of Charles Tomlinson Griffes
One of the most important phase of the study of the creative genius of any artist is the question of influence. There is little evidence to support the once popular conception of an artists, poet, or musician as a solitary, unsocial being who deliberately isolates himself from the artistic production of his own and previous ages and draws his artistic inspiration and mode of expression solely from his own mental and spiritual equipment. On the contrary, the most significant artists are usually found to be those who are most acutely sensitive to the cumulative progress in their chosen art and to the artistic and intellectual trends of their own time.
