                                 GOD SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF THE GREATEST MINDS (Click on title for information)

 

 JEAN, AUGUSTE, DOMINIQUE INGRES

     “Have religion in your art. Do not believe that you can produce anything of worth . . . without the elevation of the soul. To see anything beautiful you must see only the sublime. Do not look to the right, to the left, or below. Look only to heaven, and don’t look down toward the earth like pigs who seek in the mud.” (Ingres, 1947, 45)

     “If God will give me the mercy to increase the limited contingent of my works until the great departure. May God also make them a little deserving for posterity.” (Ibid., 40)
