The Art Spirit

I’ve been reading a beautiful book by Robert Henri, the Art Spirit, recommended by a good friend of mine, James. Some of my favorite quotes include:

The best art the world has ever had is but the impress left by men who have thought less of making great art than of living full and completely with all their faculties in the enjoyment of full play.

And

Realize that a drawing is not a copy. It is a construction in very different material. A drawing is an invention.
