#b9c9e1 foreground

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

Paul Cezanne
<p style="color: #b9c9e1">…</p>

#b9c9e1 background

It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.
