Quote of the Day - Said of Avigdor Arikha Upon his Death

His art, in its apparent simplicity, embodies that highest ideal of painting – celebrating life by framing mundane corners of existence in the singular painter’s gaze and forcing the observer to appreciate that magnificence may exist in things we often hardly seem to notice.   -- Jonathan Beck, Jerusalem Post
 Some of Arikha's works.
