Thank You

From Dr. Richard J. Scruggs

Dear Mr. Ross,

I too am staggered by the art of Bouguereau and for the past two weeks have been obsessed with coming to grips with and redefining the "new" nature of late 19th century art and his vision of the human being. You have begun an enormous and incalculable task which will redefine the late 19th century in art as much as Mendelssohn redefined the late Baroque by revealing Bach for us nearly 100 years after his death. Thank you sounds so weak for this....
