Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Pablo Picasso
<p style="color: #525252">…</p>

#525252 background

It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.

Mark Rothko

#525252 shadow

If I were called upon to define briefly the word Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the senses preceive in nature, seen through the veil of the soul.

Paul Cezanne
