grand / theme
An especial significance inhabits the grand. It is the paragon, the summit, the apex. Its spacious embrace reverberates with a full and powerful voice. The grand is always larger, greater, and more valuable. Pyramids, monuments, jewels, leaders, and luminaries all aspire to grandeur.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
