Maurice Denis
I believe that art should sanctify nature.
Denis quotes
...Every work of art is a transposition,a caricature,the passionate equivalent of a sensation received.
Art is no longer a purely visual is a work of our intellect triggered by nature...the imagination again become the queen of our strengths and we liberate our sensitivity.

Denis Maurice quotes
Remember that a picture, before being a battle horse, a nude, an anecdote or whatnot, is essentially a flat surface covered with colours assembled in a certain order.
