Art Quote of the Day

“A painter should not object to listening to the opinion of a layman.  Even if a man is not a painter, he knows what the human form looks like and whether a man has, let’s say, a hump or a thick leg or a large hand, or whether he is lame or has a large mouth or nose or anything else.  If someone is quite capable of judging the works of Nature, shouldn’t we admit him capable of detecting our errors?
