Bergmann Loizeaux argues convincingly that the ekphrastic poet often felt a kinship with painters of the past, especially in the twentieth century. Marginalized as members of an elite form of art, poets sought visual soul mates, as Sexton found in Van Gogh. Stirred by the pictorial turn which took place in that century as well, they knew that their audience would recognize the images they would describe.
