“For the artist drawing is discovery.
(...) A line, an area of tone, is not really important because it records what you have seen, but because of what it will lead you on to see. (...) A drawing is an authobiographical record of one’s discovery of an event – either seen, remembered or imagined (...) is essentially a private work, related only to the artist’s own needs. (...) In front of a drawing he [the spectator] identifies himself with the artist, using the images to gain the conscious experience of seeing as though through the artist’s own eyes.
Everything originally depends upon the quality of discovery. Mannerisms, however elegant, are barriers to discovery as clichés are barriers to thought”
