The degeneration of church art
From the heights of Catholic religiosity
To the depths of Protestant secularity
Was paralleled by the elevation of state art
From the depths of Romantic secularity
To the heights of Classical light artistry.
By contrast to painting, light art most definitely
Signifies a 'fall', as from wavicle realism
To particle materialism, but one significant of
A progression from atoms to electrons,
And thus commensurate with the proletariat
Rather than the bourgeoisie.
