#a6a9a0 foreground

If a man devotes himself to art, much evil is avoided that happens otherwise if one is idle.

Albrecht Durer
<p style="color: #a6a9a0">…</p>

#a6a9a0 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

#a6a9a0 shadow

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
