odd sign in Tijuana - "the nineteenth century dislike of realism is the rage of caliban seeing his own face in the mirror"

"the nineteenth century dislike of realism is the rage of caliban seeing his own face in the mirror"

A bit of Google-fu shows this to be a misquote of a line from Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray.

A thought-provoking sentiment - especially as I've been reading a lot lately about the Transcendentalists, Theosophists, and other 19th Century movements.

Why this is painted on a cinder block wall enclosing a border crossing in Tijuana...I have no idea.

The San Diego Maritime Museum - sdmaritime.org. From the 1800's sailing ship Star of India to a 1950s Soviet sub, interesting exhibits.
