Press Quotes

  • "...simply beautiful...sensuously attractive..."
  • "This may be [Mark's] most elegiac work, and it always seem like a special event."
  • "...the combination of restraint and emotion is profoundly moving. If you weep, it's not just at the death of Socrates but at the mystery of Morris's artistic means."
