|Paperback Reader, 20x20, sold|
This piece ("Paperback Reader" 20x20') was painted last year and sold very quickly the first night of being available. I still wonder if the recipient (bought as a gift) enjoyed it.?. Hope so.
Quote: "Somewhere in the course of their career, artists must learn not merely to despise everything which is not entirely theirs, but must rid themselves completely of this blind fanaticism which drives us to imitate the great masters and swear only by their works.... One must learn to be grateful for one's own findings: a handful of naive inspiration is better than anything else."
