Art is the lie that makes us realize truth

source: global gallery
I have been looking at art all day to incorporate into my writing classes this fall. I've always loved this Picasso painting because it's such a simple picture but says so much. It's also one that is relatable. The colors are also lively juxtaposed against the simple black and white hands. 
Some quotes by Picasso...
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. 
(This seems to happen somewhere around the time a child enters school...hmmmm) 
Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.  
(A good quote to use on my syllabi to show why we need to study books and other forms of art) 
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.  
(We could all use this quote in the doldrums of life. It's hard  work making life exciting sometimes)
