The Mysterious


Reclining Woman sketch by Gustav Klimt.

My quote today comes from Jens-Hemming Sorensen:

“A face, a leg, a split open ball – you never get the whole story.  And isn’t that what’s best when contemplating art.  Not being presented with all the answers in advance.”

How wonderful this drawing is.  Klimt just lifts just a corner, making the work so much more interesting and mysterious than having everything served up at once and leaving nothing to the imagination.

I am trying to master this skill and with great difficulty I must say.  How much is too much?  Your comments will be most gratefully received.
