Georges Braque – The Value of Art

“Art is made to disturb. Science reassures. There is only one valuable thing in art; the thing you cannot explain.”

 – Georges Braque

My watercolor instructor says if the painting shows “everything” and does not leave room for the viewer to “finish” it it’s a boring painting – to say the least – or may be even a bad one. The Braque quote reminded me of that.

Have a great sunny weekend!
