【USA】The ART SPIRIT
The Art Spirit Robert Henri
Paint what you feel.
Paint what you see.
Paint what is real to you.
Don’t belong to any school.
Don’t tie up to any technique.
All outward success, when it has value, is but the inevitable result of an inward success of full living, full play and enjoyment of one’s faculties.
A man cannot be honest unless he is wise. To be honest is to be just and is to realize the relative value of things. The faculties must play hard in order to seize the relative values.
Do whatever you do intensely.
The artist is the man who leaves the crowd and goes pioneering. With him there is an idea which is his life.
The signature on a picture should be modest, should be readable and simple and should enter into, not interrupt, the composition.
