Dominus Venustas

Art writer. Art reader. Art lover.
Art is a language. One that speaks of truth and of humanity. I am on a journey to discover the Masters of Art and shine a light on their greatness. By Jackie Honsig-Erlenburg
Delacroix writes his deep thoughts on the soul in painting
The main source of interest comes from the soul of the artist, and flows into the soul of the beholder in an irresistible way. Not that every interesting work strikes all its beholders with equal force merely because each of them is supposed to possess a soul; only people gifted with feeling and imagination are capable of being moved.
- Journal entry, January 25, 1857
The words of Delacroix are so beautiful to read because they are so entirely genuine. He wrote in personal journals only for himself. And thus came forth from the pen… sincerity and real feeling.
