An Artist

July 30, 2007

He who works with his hands is a laborer;

 

He who works with his hand and his head is an artisan;

 

He who works with his hand and his head and his heart is an artist.

  1. Brilliant! I love it.


  2. Fantastic! Those old guys sure did paint scrumptiously.


  3. Great quotation! I just saw the original of that painting in Vienna–what a coincidence.


  4. Forgot to say that I particularly like the quotation because I read a blog comment somewhere today saying essentially that anyone who’s not formally trained in art can’t ever be good. I was depressed–for five minutes 🙂
