"If buyers of pictures could be brought to believe that… Their part to play in the development and the progress of art in out time and place they too should enter the struggle for today’s expression, lending a full support by purchasing the works of strugglers and searchers of our day and risking many mistakes in their purchases, just as the artists are risking many mistakes in their efforts - it would be of public benefit." #supportlocalartists #inspiration #mistakes #moversandshakers #art #artbuyers #artists #roberthenri #theartist spirit
