Quote of the Day

"...It is a fallacy to assume that every painting must represent something. As for me, I get pleasure very often out of a wholly meaningless arrangement of lights and colors. There are fabrics which tickle me vastly. I have, for example, an Irish poplin necktie of purple shot with vague greens that pleases me more than most pictures."

H.L. Mencken (in a letter to Willard Huntington Wright), 1913
