Can an artist even be brave strictly through their art?

Sure they can. Steyn made this point himself in referring to Theo Van Gogh, though I'd argue that any film-maker willing to tackle the subject of Islam in the wake of Van Gogh's death is braver than Van Gogh himself was. It'd certainly take an act of bravery for Salman Rushdie to write "Satanic Verses II".

I'm not sure Van Gogh or Rushdie knew what they were getting themselves into.
