“Art … is a form of truth”

If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him… We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth.” John F. Kennedy

  1. Of course it can be propaganda as well, can’t it? 🙂 I’m sure you love me for being Ms. Negative, don’t you? But it can. Still and all, a good quote and photo. Wow, a bird just flew into our living room window! Fortunately, it flew off again. That will wake a person up!!

  2. Aww – just love this picture and am lucky to see it every day!! 😄
    Wonderful quote – if only it really were the case with art not used for propaganda. I’ve seen some hideous paintings made for the American Republicans with Trump leading ‘his’ people out of the dark and into a bright new future – let’s just say: ugh! 😂
