The Listening Room, 1952

Would to God it were possible for me to see the work and art of the mighty masters to come, who are yet unborn, for I know I might be improved. Ah! How often in my sleep do I behold great works of art and beautiful things, the like whereof never appear to me awake, but so soon as I awake even the remembrance of them leaveth me.

—Albrecht Dürer, 1512–13
