"The object isn't to make art, it's to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable." - Robert Henri
Of late I have been reading, in very slow stages, Robert Henri's "The Art Spirit". Born in 1865, Henri was an American artist and inspired teacher. The book, published in 1923, is a compilation of his notes, articles, talks and letters about art making and art appreciation containing much that remains timeless. Not the sort of book to go through all at once, but one that I feel I will revisit again and again.
