A BEQUEST TO A CHILD
THE WINGS OF IMAGINATION
There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other wings.*
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Although he seemed to have had a successful career, French artist Charles-Amable Lenoir (1860-1926) is another painter whose name and work have generally faded with time. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), one of Germany’s leading literary figures, wrote about a number of subjects including botany and anatomy.
