    are his for/ are for his

    Are they all the same in meaning?
    Human dealings of every kind are his for the artistic seizing.
    Human dealings of every kind are for his artistic seizing.
    Please bear with my petty question; I just want to see if there is another equivalent sentence structure . Thanks.

    Re: are his for/ are for his

    They're grammatically correct, though I like the first more. There's a slight difference- the first implies that he has the choice, the second that he uses all sorts already. However, I'd say 'seizing artistically'.
