Industrialism And Art

1. Eric Gill says:
     the notion of work
     has been separated
     from the notion of art.

2. The notion of the useful
     has been separated
     from the notion of the beautiful.

3. The artist,
     that is to say,
     the responsible workman,
     has been separated
     from all other workmen.

4. The factory hand
     has no responsibility
     for what he produces.

5. He has been reduced
     to a sub-human condition
     of intellectual irresponsibility.

6. Industrialism
     has released the artist
     from the necessity
     of making anything useful.

7. Industrialism
     has also released the workman
     from making anything amusing.
