|Le Serment de Spartacus by Louis-Ernest Barrias (1869)|
Jardin des Tuileries - Paris
“It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue,
and so to make a few objects beautiful;
but it is far more glorious to carve and paint
the very atmosphere and medium through which we look...
To affect the quality of the day — that is the highest of arts.”
- Henry David Thoreau
