Η αγάπη τους έγινε αιώνια. Στo χαρτί, στον καμβά, στο μάρμαρο και το ξύλο, η αγάπη τους διαπέρασε το χώρο και το χρόνο. Η άσβηστη νεότητα των εραστών, των ερωτευμένων, στην πιο ευγενική μορφή της, την τέχνη, έρχεται στο προσκήνιο ξανά και ξανά μέσα στους αιώνες. Κανείς, όσο η τέχνη, δεν αποθέωσε τον έρωτα.
