On to a more serious note about someone who was famous in his own time, Robert Henri.
|Robert Henri, Gertrude Venderbilt Whitney, 1916|
You have to make your statement of what is sential to you-an innate reality, not a surface reality. You handle surface appearances as compositional factors to express a reality that is beyond superficial appearances. You choose things seen and use them to phrase your statement." Robert Henri/ The Art Spirit
"In other words if you want a picture buy a camera." Pam Hartfield/non-famous artist
