“Every student should put down in some form or other his findings. All any man can hope to do is to add his fragment to the whole. No man can be final, but he can record his progress, and whatever he records is so much done in the thrashing out of the Whole thing. What he leaves is so much for others to use as stones to step on or stones to avoid.”

Robert Henri, The Art Spirit

“Through art mysterious bonds of understanding and of knowledge are established among men. They are the bonds of a great Brotherhood. Those who are of the Brotherhood know each other, and time and space cannot separate them.”

Robert Henri, The Art Spirit
