Alberto Giacometti wrote this about Amedeo Modigliani: "He was the last great Promethean hero. He certainly had a wonderful intelligence and openness of spirit. Besides painting portraits, he made pages of drawings; and that is what I always try to do. Draw, draw all the time; that is the secret."
I could not agree more. What could be more wonderful than to feel camaraderie with these two guys? These are artists I most deeply respect. This truth, this idea, this passion about drawing, is exhibited by every artist I emulate, including Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, and da Vinci. Drawing is the birth-form of all important, and profound, visual art.
