Robert Shore: "Every artist should follow his own drummer, but on this journey he should keep an open mind."
"Some of the artists I admire most," said Robert Shore, "are Klee, Goya..."
"... Rembrandt and Picasso, and many of the pre-Renaissance painters."
"All of them were deeply involved with the subject but never to the point where they neglected the over-all pictorial concept."
"Every artist should follow his own drummer, but on this journey he should keep an open mind, eye, and heart to all that is going on about him in both art and life."
"In one's search for a personal idiom, there can be no substitute for the study of the great traditions in art. I cannot think of a period in art in which there aren't works to my liking."
