Dreams of Decadence 1 – Sleep of Reason

clipped from images.google.com

“[Goya] In describing his series of prints called Los Caprichos he wrote: ‘Fantasy abandoned by reason produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of its arts and the origins of its marvels’…”

“In the imagination at least, the primacy of reason has been overthrown. Now what was important was how deep and powerful and affecting the products of that imagination could becone. New Sensations were sought after and the old moral order was seen as a restriction to the all important search for the new.”

pg. 9, Immoral Tales, Tohill and Tombs
