²Escamado por la vehemencia con que el artista le recuerda sus célebres desatinos, el crítico
camina con pasos aprensivos, temiendo que patentes fealdades resulten insólitas bellezas.
No es para admirar para lo que se necesita hoy intrepidez, es para reprobar.

²Cowed by the vehemence with which the artist reminds him of his famous follies, the critic

walks with cautious steps, fearing that patent ugliness might end up being unusual beauty.

It is not in order to admire that one requires courage today; it is in order to censure.

or unjust, which blinds us.
