Simple as a flower, and that's a complicated thing . . . (the art of Transcendentalism and the Hudson River School)

Song selection - Love and Rockets "No New Tale to Tell"

I am not a fan of Transcendentalism or Romanticism (I blame my English teachers), but they are significant.  Today's art comes from the Transcendental period.
