Famous Artist Quote #0277


“In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.”

Michelangelo Buonarroti

  1. sourgirlohio: Ahhh! It was the perfect quote to follow my image “Madonna Mia”. It was waiting patiently in the wings for 3 years for its turn on Blog-Bisogno.com (I’m experiencing illusions of grandeur at the moment). 🙂 Thanks so much for liking this Michelangelo quote.

    I was living in Forest Hills in 1964-65 which was practically right around the corner from the New York World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows. That’s where I saw Michelangelo’s La Pietà on loan from Italy. I was mesmerized. How could anything that beautiful be created by a human being?

  3. izza ifzaal: I’m glad you liked this Michelangelo quote…glad you felt the need to honor one of the greatest artists of all time. Surely he deserves more than 5 likes on an obscure blog of an evidently deranged photographer…and thanks to you he now has 6 !!!
