‘Vir Heroicus Sublimus’ (Man, Heroic and Sublime) by Barnett Newman.

Vir Heroicus Sublimus’ (1950–51)

Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt
― Immanuel Kant, Critique of Pure Reason
