“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.”


Pablo Picasso:

"The Dream" by Pablo Picasso created in 1932 Entre o realismo e o cubismo, o artista pulsante Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), deixou em sua obra uma mistura de confissão autobiográfica e fantasia, na opinião de seus especialistas. Magnificamente artístico, seu trabalho nos proporciona as mais variadas experimentações estéticas. Nesta obra denominada O Sonho, já da fase cubista, o artista proporciona a reflexão acerca do erotismo e do gozo visual. Em explícito êxtase, a dama da figura toca seu púbis:

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

Charles Baudelaire:

"The Gold Scale" František (Franz) Kupka (1871-1957) Czech, Symbolist Movement:

“The beautiful is always bizarre.”
