In Art We Trust

Anything art: paintings, photography, architecture, art news, art history, sculpture from cave to contemporary

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.

An artist is not paid for his labor, but for his vision.
— James Whistler
In every painting, as in any other work of art, there is always an IDEA, never a STORY. The idea is the point of departure, the first cause of the plastic construction, and it is always present all the time as energy creating matter. The stories and other literary associations exist only in the mind of the spectator, the painting acting as the stimulus.
— Jose Clemente Orozco
Even amidst fierce flames the golden lotus can be planted.
