Drawing at Alexandra Palace

Preparatory sketches (grasses, plants, artichoke)


HOW they are provided for upon the earth, (appearing at
How dear and dreadful they are to the earth,
How they inure to themselves as much as to any—what
a paradox appears their age,
How people respond to them, yet know them not,
How there is something relentless in their fate all times,
How all times mischoose the objects of their adulation
and reward,
And how the same inexorable price must still be paid for
the same great purchase.

- Walt Whitman
