The Museum of Bad Art ???
This is the video by the Executive Director of MOBA, the Museum of Bad Art. We want everyone to see that because it is both educational and funny. When we show it to people, we have found they want to see it all the way through. Watch and learn. What is art? What is good art? What is bad art? In this video the Director of the Museum of of Bad Art in Boston Massachusettes provides a humorous and insightful presentation. You won't be disappointed.
Robert Henri on Art
When the artist is alive in any person, whatever his kind of work may be, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressing creature.
Know what the old masters did. Know how they composed their pictures, but do not fall into the conventions they established. These conventions were right for them, and they are wonderful. They made their language. You make yours.
An interest in the subject; something you may want to say definitively about the subject; this is the first condition of a portrait. The processes of painting spring from this interest, this definite thing to be said. Completion does not depend on material representation. The work is done when that special thing has been said.
A human body bathed in the color of the atmosphere surrounding it, luminous and warm in its own color.
A thing is beautiful when it is strong in its kind.
ORIGINALITY: Don’t worry about your originality. You could not get rid of it even if you wanted to. It will stick to you and show you up for better or worse even if you wanted to in spite of all you or anyone else could do.
If I cannot feel an undercurrent then I see only a series of things. They may be attractive and novel at first but soon grow tiresome. There is an undercurrent, the real life, beneath all appearances everywhere. I do not say that any master has fully comprehended it at any time, but the value of his work is in that he has sensed it and his work reports the measure of his experience.
The very essential quality of all really great men is their intense humanity, and they all have an unusual power of thinking.
The pictures that do not represent an intense interest cannot expect to create an intense interest.
When the motives of artist are profound, when they are at their work as a result of deep consideration, when they believe in the importance of what they are doing, their work creates a stir in the world.
The true character of the student is one of great mental and spiritual activity. He arrives at conclusions and he searches to express his findings. He goes to the market place, to the exhibition place, wherever he can reach the people, to lay before them his new angle on life.
When a drawing is tiresome it may be because the motive is not worth the effort.
The average idea of portraiture needs reconstruction. When Rodin made his Balzac he made a great portrait. It is probably not so much what Balzac looked like to the ordinary eye; but it is the man as Rodin understood him, and I think Rodin had an unusual understanding.
He paints like a man going over the top of the hill, singing.
Develop the power of seeing the points of action; your keenness of sight of such muscular activities must be greater than that of the ordinary observer.
Let a student enter the school with this advice: No matter how good the school is, his education is in his own hands. All education must be self-education.
In fact, technique can only be used properly by those who have definite purpose in what they do, and it is only they who invent technique. Otherwise it is the work of a parrot. You can do anything you want to do. What is rare is this actual wanting to do a specific thing: wanting it so much that you are blind to all other things, that nothing else will satisfy you. When you, body and soul, wish to make a certain expression and cannot be distracted from this one desire, then you will be able to make great use of whatever technical knowledge you have.
Blunder ahead with your own personal view.
The question of the development of the art spirit in all walks of life interests me. I mean by this, the development of individual judgment and taste, the love of work for the sake of doing things well, tendency towards simplicity and order. If anything can be done to bring the public to a greater consciousness of the relation between art and life, of the part each person plays by exercising and developing his own personal taste and judgment and not depending on outside “authority,” it would be well.
It is a question of saying the thing that a person has to say. A man should not care whether the thing he wishes to express is art or not, whether it is a picture or not, he should only care that it is a statement of what is worthy to put into permanent expression.
We want inventors all through life; the only people that ever succeed in writing, painting, sculpture, manufacturing, in finance, are inventors.
We must realize that artists are not in competition with each other. Help the young artists---find for them a means to make their financial ways easier, that they may develop and fruit their fullest---but let’s not ask them to please us in doing it.
A man must become interesting to himself and must become actually expressive before he can be happy.
Walt Whitman seems to have found great things in the littlest things of life. It beats all the things that wealth can give and everything else in the world to say the things one believes, to put them into form, to pass them on to anyone who may care to take them up.
In all times, as in our times, the domination of the world has stood the enemy of the artist---the one who would live.
It isn’t so much that you say the truth as that you say an important truth.
Those who have lived and grown at least to some degree in the spirit of freedom, are our creative artists.
They have a wonderful time. They keep the world going. They must leave their trace in some way, paint, stone, machinery, whatever. The importance of what they do is greater than anyone estimates at the time. In fact in a commercial world there are thousands of lives wasted doing things not worth doing. Human spirit is sacrificed.
There is nothing so important as in the world, nothing so constructive, so life-sustaining.
Go to your work because it is the most important living to you. Make great things---as great as you are. Work always as if you were a master, expect from yourself a masterpiece.
