Quote for the Day 6/16/2016

“True courage and boldness as we admire it in the greatest artists can only be born from the feelings that study has developed. False courage, the conceit of self-consciousness and ignorance, is the most regrettable vice for the artist. Modesty, the inclination for naive research are, on the contrary, the most precious qualities for a beginner.”

-Edouard Lanteri, from Modelling and Sculpting the Human Figure 1902
