„The great Christian art did not die because all possible forms had been used up; it died because faith was being transformed into piety.“

— André Malraux French novelist, art theorist and politician 1901 - 1976
Context: The great Christian art did not die because all possible forms had been used up; it died because faith was being transformed into piety. Now, the same conquest of the outside world that brought in our modern individualism, so different from that of the Renaissance, is by way of relativizing the individual. It is plain to see that man's faculty of transformation, which began by a remaking of the natural world, has ended by calling man himself into question. André Malraux, Les voix du silence [Voices of Silence] (1951) Part IV, Chapter VI

In 'The Grand Boulevards' (of Paris), Piet Mondriaan, in 'De Groene Amsterdammer', 27 March 1920 pp. 4-5
