MaryAnnHogan commented on the word Victorian horror vacui
From the NYTimes Home section, page D6, "Closeting the Arguments," Thursday June 18, 2009:
"She has the Zen aesthetic," Mr. Greene said. "I have the Victorian horror vacui, the fear of empty space."
Also some art is described as horror vacui. No empty spaces in the painting. Very cluttered.
