Well, this prompted a bunch of interesting discussion and answers, though I ultimately accepted medica's because it was closest to the aesthetic context I was asking about.

@JohnLawler, I'm sure that's the phrase, I've seen it written by reputable critics.

Thanks, that gives me greater insight into painting, and seems fairly easily extensible to words/lyrics, dialogue, music, and plot.

comment Is it proper usage to replace a comma in a list with a semi-colon in this situation (see details)?
Is there a reason why you didn't (/one shouldn't) put a semicolon before the final item in the list, beginning 'and'? (Here this is "and travelling to the farthest-flung corners of the globe".)
