The art of Ryno Swart


From my latest newsletter:

The life of an artist

Is it art we love or the idea of being the artist?

If we love art, we will love the work of one or more artists. Identify these artist. If you truly love an artist, for a start you will have them in your bookshelf.

So who do you love? Degas, Klimt, Sargent, Turner, Tiepolo, Corot, Toulouse Lautrec. There is no monogamy in this love. But how much do you love them?

Who is the artist that you would offer your services to as a studio assistant? As an apprentice? Michelangelo, Rodin, Alma-Tadema? Who is the master that you would sacrifice your talent and skill for so that they would never have to clean their brushes, or stretch another canvas. Not forever, but let's say for six months?
