Quote of the Day

“Charles knows that it is intimacy that matters. Picking up a drawing enables us to ‘catch the thought of the artist in all its freshness, at the very moment of manifestation, with perhaps even more truth and sincerity than in the works that require arduous hours of labour, with the defiant patience of the genius.'”

– Edmund de Waal, quoting from Charles Ephrussi’s Albert Dürer et ses dessins. I believe the same could be said of journals and first drafts.
