Art by Ralph Waldo Emerson

In this essay, which first appeared in Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Essays: First Series", the essayist explores art and artists as they relate to transcendentalism.

Quotes of Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"Art is the path of the creator to his work."

"Art is a jealous mistress, and, if a man have a genius for painting, poetry, music, architecture or philosophy, he makes a bad husband and an ill provider."

"Every genuine work of art has as much reason for being as the earth and the sun."

About the Author

Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) was an American essayist, lecturer, and poet, who led the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States.
