Lot Essay

“A NEW PAINTING should be a unique thing, a birth bringing a new face into the representation of the world through the human spirit. The artist should call forth all of his energy, his sincerity, and the greatest possible modesty in order to push aside during this work the old clichés that come so readily to his hand and can suffocate the small flower which itself never turns out as one expected.” - Matisse
