"The artist must create a spark before he can make a fire." --Auguste Rodin, French sculptor
Who better to speak about the creative process than the greatest artists in history? From Georgia O'Keeffe and Ralph Waldo Emerson to Pablo Picasso and Isak Dinesen, Words of Art is a celebration of the craft and the artists who have changed the way we see the world--and influenced how we create.
