Splash du Jour: Wednesday

The Dance / Henri Matisse / 1910

Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term art, I should call it "the reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature through the veil of the soul." The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of "artist."
-- Edgar Allen Poe, 1849 --

Have a great Wednesday!
