Unsaidquarters – “The Auroras of Autumn” (10/17/11)

It does no good to speak of the big, blue bush
Of day. If the study of his images
Is the study of man, this image of Saturday,
This Italian symbol, this Southern landscape, is like
A waking, as in images we awake,
Within the very object that we seek,
Participants of its being. It is, we are.
He is, we are. Ah, bella!

–Wallace Stevens, “Study of Images,” The Auroras of Autumn (1950)

Pierre Bonnard
(1867-1947)
