Close your bodily eye, that you may see your picture first with the eye of the spirit.
Then bring to light what you have seen in the darkness,
that its effect may work back, from without to within.
~ Caspar David Friedrich ~
Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside awakens.
~ Carl Gustav Jung ~
The only way to understand painting is to go and look at it. And if out of a million visitors
there is even one to whom art means something, that is enough to justify museums
~ Pierre-Auguste Renoir ~
Accurate drawing, accurate colour, is perhaps not the essential thing to aim at,
because the reflection of reality in a mirror, if it could be caught, colour and all,
would not be a picture at all, no more than a photograph
~ Vincent van Gogh ~
