Exhaustion of art forms/artists

Not long ago I was reading a criticism of the notion that certain artistic styles become "exhausted" after which new styles have to be found that centered on the sensible claim that it is artists who come to find styles exhausted, not styles that in themselves become exhausted; it quoted at length from a scholar of Chinese art who made much the same point in regards to some period of Chinese painting (and perhaps poetry?). I can't at all remember where it was, though, and I would like to recover it. [more inside]

ID a poem for me.

Sometime 5-9 years ago, The New Criterion published a poem divided into parts, one of which ended "bones. bones. bones. bones." (each instance of "bones." being on a separate line). I think that section was headed "things that are white" and it included "your smile". Now I can't remember anything else about it. Any leads as to author, text, etc?

When was the Wall Street panic that Wallstreet Panic Snopes is named after? 1893 seems too early.
