I think your reference here is VERY relevant to Eliot's work.
Cf. Pound's Make It New.

From a recent interview on Matisse on Charlie Rose
re: current retrospective at MOMA:

"'All things considered, there is only Matisse' - Pablo Picasso"
"Questioner to Matisse 'Surely you don't put down intelligence?'
 Matisse: 'Yes. Ireject intellectulity. There is only instinct.' "
