When did Vincent Van Gogh feel most alive? Why did Juan Gris always pet a dog with his left hand? Inside this book, you'll find the answers to these questions and more in the words of the artists themselves. Art lover Bob Raczka pairs thought-provoking (and sometimes funny) quotes by famous painters with colorful examples of their best work. The result is an enjoyable gallery of observations about the joys and the mysteries of art. From Edgar Degas' The Rehearsal (1878-79) to Georgia O'Keeffe's Evening Star, No. III (1917) to Romare Bearden's Family (1986), you'll discover the works - and the wisdom - of eighteen artistic masters.
