Lot Essay

“Art begins to be born. Once rid of the religions and the philosophies, art is the one thing that can save the world. Art is the plank after the shipwreck, that saves someone... Art must give all at once suddenly the shock of life, the sensation of breathing—the sense of happiness” (C. Brancusi quoted in D. Dudley, op. cit., p. 127).
