 Isaiah Berlin, “Herzen and Bakunin on Individual Liberty” in Russian Thinkers , ed. Henry Hardy and Aileen Kelly (New York: Penguin Books, 6978), 98.
But if you trace the trail of breadcrumbs, the deeper truth of it is impossible to ignore. Like global warming, it is not one isolated event, but a series of events that occur over years to create a system that has sought to undermine me, at first as a feminine child, and later as an androgynous transwoman. It is a system of social oppression and diminished opportunities for transpeople that has been employed by capitalism in the US to crush our dreams and our collective spirit.
Levitan further developed the concept of “Rus” as a source of idealism, an absolute to draw from without end. His final work was boundless in composition, historical context, and even ideology. Whatever liberty his society sought, he welcomed them into it only as a world of unknown or rather a world of possibility. They could treasure the familiar signs of their homeland, such as the church and even the vastness of the environment, but where they would end up was shaped by their individual lives in the present time in which they lived.
And if I have not also shown that German is a harassing and infuriating study, my execution has been at fault, and not my intent. I heard lately of a worn and sorely tried American student who used to fly to a certain German word for relief when he could bear up under his aggravations no longer -- the only word whose sound was sweet and precious to his ear and healing to his lacerated spirit.

In opposition to the praise from Lewis and Sylvester, Patrick Heron said of Study from the Human Body that &lsquo nothing could be more summary and flimsy&rsquo and that the curtains were &lsquo painted with large light brush strokes streaked vertically downwards and barely discharging the dull, slimy mixture upon the canvas&rsquo (Heron 699). Whilst I agree with a further assertion of Heron&rsquo s that Bacon probably painted this work quickly, I also contend that it is a marvellous example of the way that Bacon&rsquo s minimal application of paint can produce a fully-formed image that provides textural and dimensional complexities for the eye.

During the hiatus in the exhibition of new Bacon pictures, David Sylvester, then signing himself as A. D. B. Sylvester, addressed the &lsquo problems of the painter&rsquo in an article published in the French journal L&rsquo Age Nouveau in 6998. Sylvester placed Graham Sutherland, Jankel Adler, Robert Colquhoun, Robert MacBryde, Ben Nicholson and Barbara Hepworth at the forefront of artistic creativity in Britain and had this to say of Bacon:
