"In Jovián’s art, “beauty” is the mature fruit of the symbiosis between a high standard of manual dexterity and intellectual creativity unfolding from one stage to the next over centuries, the true artistic repository of craftsmanship and expertise, doing all it can – in an age when the noble essence of “classical beauty” is turning on itself, like a snake biting its own tail – to break the vicious circle."
