Definition and background:
Having been made or come into existence only a short time ago. And, perhaps: recent, or fresh, or not previously known, or different from the old, or rejuvenated, or original if it's the first one. Newness is a quality particularly highly prized by adherents to Modernism.(pr. nyoo or noo)Quotes: "There is no new thing under the sun." The Bible: Ecclesiastes, 1:9. "What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough." Eugene Delacroix (1798-1863), French Romantic painter. "Nothing is repeated, and nothing is unparalleled." Edmond and Jules Goncourt (1822-1896 & 1830-1870), French brothers who collaborated as writers. Journal, 1867. "The greater the decrease in the social significance of an art form, the sharper the distinction between criticism and enjoyment by the public. The conventional is uncritically enjoyed, and the truly new is criticized with aversion." Walter Benjamin (1892-1940), German philosopher and critic. The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, section 12, 1936. "For me art shouldn't be a fixed idea that I have before I start making it. I want it to include all the fragility and doubt that I go through the day with. Sometimes I'll take a walk just to forget whatever good idea I had that day because I like to go into the studio not having any ideas. I want the insecurity of not knowing, like performers feel before a performance. Everything I can remember, and everything I know, I have probably already done, or somebody else has." Robert Rauschenburg (1925-), American artist, quoted by Michael Kimmelman in an article about Rauschenburg, New York Times, Arts & Leisure section 2, August 27, 2000, p. 26.
