(Discussion) Is it enough, to try to sell art just on itself, or has there (extra) to be an emotional cargo, the artist's vision, that tips the balance...?

"The one common element that I've discovered when studying master painters is that they were all students." - Stephen Quiller
"If we study Japanese art, we see a man who is undoubtedly wise, philosophic and intelligent, who spends his time doing what?... He studies a single blade of grass." - Vincent van Gogh
"No one has ever grown a garden...that you couldn't grow yourself (actually no one has ever grown a garden... But they have planted the seeds, held a vision, and cared for it, day-by-day-by-day)." - TU
"It is the essence of genius to make use of the simplest ideas." - Charles Peguy
"If you wish to understand others, you must intensify your own individualism." - Oscar Wilde
