Great art picks up where nature ends.

Marc Chagall
<p style="color: #aaa9ad">…</p>

#aaa9ad background

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.

Pablo Picasso
<p style="background-color: #aaa9ad">…</p>

#aaa9ad shadow

A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.
