MENTAL NOTE #80: ROBERT HENRI’S PRAISE OF COURBET.
“There are lots of people who can make sweet colors, nice tones, nice shapes of landscape, all done in nice broad and intelligent-looking brushwork.
Courbet showed in every work what a man he was, what a head and heart he had.”
“THE ART SPIRIT”, Robert Henri, p.18.
Personally, when I look at this self-portrait of Courbet, I say to myself,
“DAMN! I think I feel like that sometimes, and I understand.”
