In his excellent book, Concerning the Spiritual in Art, bad-ass painter Wassily Kandinsky wrote:

…when outer supports threaten to fall, man withdraws his gaze from externals and turns it inwards. Literature, music and art are the most sensitive spheres in which this spiritual revolution makes itself felt. They reflect the dark picture of the present time and show the importance of what was at first only a little point of light noticed by the few.
