The Difference is Seen in Art

Mankind’s immense artistic talent is visible in the paintings on the walls of the Cro-Magnon caves of Lascaux.  The sublime heights to which that talent can rise in the midst of a great Christian civilization can be seen in the works of the Italian and Flemish masters.  The debasement of that talent by the rejection of the very springs and origin of civilization can likewise be seen in much of the work of modern artists.
