Visible God

I accompanied my younger son to his field trip today to see Alexi Jawlensky's exhibitions and I saw this painting (left) where he said: "I know that great art should only be painted with religious feeling and that was something I could bring only to the human face. I realized that the artist must express that within him which is divine. That is why the world of art is a visible God, and why art is a longing for God"

I just loved what he had to say and that is exactly what I feel when I see a masterpiece.

Painting: "Abstract Head: Life and Death," 1923, oil and pencil on cardboard, 16 3/4 x 12 7/8 inches.
