“LESS IS MORE.”
Less is more », phrase tiré du poème Andrea del Sarto (sous-titré The Faultless Painter, « le peintre infaillible ») de Robert Browning publié en 1855.
To paint a little thing like that you smeared carelessly passing with your robes afloat, - Yet do much less, so much less, Someone says, (I know his name, no matter) - so much less ! Well, less is more, Lucrezia: I am judged. There burns a truer light of God in them, In their vexed beating stuffed and stopped-up brain, Heart, or whate'er else, than goes on to prompt This low-pulsed forthright craftsman's hand of mine. Their works drop groundward, but themselves, I know, Reach many a time a heaven that's shut to me, Enter and take their place there sure enough, Though they come back and cannot tell the world.
