|Crucifixion. 1930. Oil on Wood.|
This quote was sprawled on the screen in my beloved art history class last week, and I just love it:
“Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.”
|Picasso in his studio in the late 1960s.|
It’s so true— lines converging, perspective being created, shadows blending to create a reality—these are all things that artists do to trick us.
Sneaky, aren’t they?
