Robert Henri, West Coast of Ireland (1913)

Robert Henri on the Purpose of Art

“There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom. If one could but recall this vision by some sort of sign. It was in this hope that the arts were invented. Sign-posts on the way to what may be. Sign-posts towards greater knowledge.”

— Robert Henri, The Art Spirit
