seemingly unimportant


Senior Member
Hi there!

I was wondering how I would say seemingly unimportant in French in the phrase Charles Baudelaire held that a true artist sees beauty in the seemingly unimportant.

This is a weird use of these two words as seemingly is generally used as an adverb and unimportant is generally used as an adjective. I am writing an essay, so I do not want to use the word thing/chose and I can't think of any other way to express the idea that Baudelaire saw beauty in the simple things in life, like stones and mud puiddles.

Any help would be great. Thanks in advance ;)

    Baudelaire maintient qu'un véritable artiste voit la beauté dans ce qui apparaît (comme) non-important"

    It is a first idea, needs to be worked on still...
