Camille Paglia
Western Art
printer friendly version
Western culture is a complex combination of the Judeo-Christian
tradition and the Greco-Roman. These two traditions are in
conflict and so we have this terrible tension going on in our
culture, particularly about sex and aggression. Much of our
artwork-- the titanic achievements of Michelangelo or Picasso
or Rubens-- is wrestling with the inner conflicts of our tradition.
So the greatness of western art is not due to western myopia--
it is due to the neuroticism that's built into the western brain.
