From The Language of the Body: Drawings by Pierre-Paul Prud'hon by John Elderfield
A beautiful book!
Some drawings are meant to be kept in a folder, not hanging on the wall. In a private, quiet moment, you take the drawing out, sit comfortably and contemplate it. It's the trigger of a meditation, of a memory, of a poetic moment. People doing this still exist, I'm one of them, and I'm drawing for them.
