Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to announce On Beauty, a celebration of the aesthetic ideals of beauty. Many artistic movements throughout history have embraced the ideal of beauty as the truest form of art. Beginning with the classical era, whose artists in their constant pursuit of proportion and balance, sought beauty through the idealized form to the present day world of fashion and celebrity culture where beauty is all pervasive. Other artistic movements from Rococo through Romanticism, culminated in the artists of the Aesthetic movement, like Dante Rossetti, Albert Moore, and Lord Leighton, who, along with literary giants of the era like Wilde and Byron, sought the representation of beauty with the motto of ‘Art for art's sake’ where beauty was a primary value to be realized at all costs.

“Beauty is a form of genius--is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. It is of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. It cannot be questioned. It has its divine right of sovereignty. It makes princes of those who have it.” ~ Oscar Wilde
