Ars Longa, Vita Meata Vegemin

On the heels of the last post, I just read a link in David Aitken's fine blog to someone else's blog post that leads with this line about Paul Revere:
Revere has been described as a silversmith. This does him an injustice. He was much more the artist than the craftsman.
Okay, he wasn't tortured. He didn't die in poverty. Bummer.

I'm no jeweler, but I've always thought of Paul Revere as the most famous silversmith in the history of America -- maybe of the world. Now, somehow, describing him as a silversmith does him an injustice?

"Silversmith" or "artist," choose one?

Like to be a true artist you have to pump out stuff as poorly crafted as Jackson Pollock?

To quote General Anthony Clement McAuliffe: Nuts.
