Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God.
Hebrews 12: 15
It is an unexpected, off the street, a privately owned collection of art made available to the public to appreciate. The gallery was once a church, but now carefully changed to be a well organised and currated gallery. I asked permission to take pictures and I was told not to use flash but the lighting was perfect in the spacious exhibition area. Being in the country of Pablo Ruiz Picassso here is his first.
A few things Pablo Ruiz Picasso said about art and life that I hope you find as interesting as I did.
” The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls”.
“Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.”
” Youth has no age.”
“I’d like to live as a poor man with a lot of money.”
” I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.”
“The world today doesn’t make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?”
Pablo Ruiz Picasso
John Atkinson Grimshaw is considered one of the best night scape and townscape artists of all time. He is considered one of the great painters of the Victorian era.
