To love a painting is to feel that this presence is… not an object but a voice.
~ Andre Malraux ~
White Rose with Larkspur No. 2
“I have a white rose to tend
In July as in January;
I give it to the true friend
Who offers his frank hand to me.
And to the cruel one whose blows
Break the heart by which I live,
Thistle nor thorn do I give:
For him, too, I have a white rose.”
~ Jose Marti ~
Art can never exist without naked beauty displaced.
