How many arguments there are in these words of my good friend J. W. Goethe, what would it be of art and artists if we painted all things as we see them? What would it be of the museums if this would happen?
Imagine “El Prado, Museum in Madrid” full of paintings of pets, near and distant relatives of the artists and the bedrooms of each one?
Oh, my God, holy creativity, wit and genius. Rather, it looks like a contest sponsored by Dog Chaw, Affinity or whatever brand of which we give to our great friends the pets (dog in my case); the best part is that we wouldn’t have to rename the meeting, “The Meadow” is a good name for a place full of animals (whether bipedal or quadrupedal).
Heh heh heh … Well, enough of jokes and let’s continue.
Today we’ll make a little mention concerning Inspiration and Creativity. You may wonder why I have written in capital letters and bold; It´s very simple, they are two of the components of the essence of Art and Artist, and they deserve a little more highlight to other words in this context.
But let’s dig a little more in these two words that more than one of us goes mad over the years and centuries.
According to the SRAL (Spanish Royal Academy of Language) this is the meaning of:
(From lat. Inspiratio,-onis).
1. f. Action and effect of inspiring or inspired.
2. f. Illustration or supernatural movement that God communicates to the creature.
3. f. Effect of feeling the writer, speaker or artist’s unique and effective stimulus that makes him to produce as spontaneously and effortlessly.
4. f. Inspired thing.
1. f. Power to create.
2. f. Ability to create
In a while, a little more.
