Sentiment

Palette

“CHRIST — ALONE — AMONG ALL THE PHILOSOPHERS, MAGICIANS, &C. DECLARED ETERNAL LIFE – the endlessness of time, the non-existence of death – to be the principal certainty. The necessity and the raison d’être of serenity and devotion.

Lived serenely as an artist greater than all artists disdaining marble and clay and paint — working in LIVING FRESH. I.e. — this extraordinary artist, hardly conceivable with the obtuse instrument of our nervous and stupefied modern brains, made neither statues nor paintings nor even books….. he states it loud and clear.. he made.. LIVING men, immortals.”

—Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Emile Bernard. Arles, Tuesday, June 26, 1888
