The Shape of Time
When you think about talent you don't ever necessarily think about the time in which it arises. The western mind thinks that if someone is talented and has the ability they will rise to the top no matter when they are performing their skill. Yet depending on the time period the skill not be needed or appreciated. Timing and opportunity comes into play even when it comes to talent. We can easily identify painters such as DiVinci and Michaelangelo because they are extremely talented and their skills fit their time period. We may not know about less significant artists, yet they can be very talented but their work didn't rise to the top because of the time period they were in. I found this article to be a thought provoking point on talent and how it can come to be. It doesn't just hold true for art but for other areas as well.
