Imagination and Art: Oscar Wilde

IMAGINATION_by_archanN

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.

Oscar Wilde 1854-1900

This is something we all know instinctively as children. Unfortunately, life (and the adults who surround us) knock it out of many of us.

The illustration is ‘Life in the minds of children’ by Mehdinom, uploaded to Wikimedia by the artist.
