“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
“There are two devices which can help the sculptor to judge his work: one is not to see it for a while. The other… is to look at his work through spectacles which will change its color and magnify or diminish it, so as to disguise it somehow to his eye, and make it look as though it were the work of another” -Gian Lorenzo Bernini
“Drawing is the probity of art. To draw does not mean simply to reproduce contours; drawing does not consist merely of line: drawing is also expression, the inner form, the plane, modeling. See what remains after that. ”
“If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all”.
Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564)
