Description

Brought to you by http://www.artbyknight.com "Here's to the great ones, the classics, the awe-inspiring, and the old masters. The ones that fought for truth and beauty. The ones who take us on a journey, raise our spirits, engage our senses and speak to our souls . They saw beauty in the world around them, and stories to be told. They sought enlightenment, and strove for excellence... never ceasing in their quest for a human connection. You can exalt them or criticize them, celebrate or scorn them. But you can't underestimate them. Because they mattered. They left a magnificent fingerprint on the world, and changed the course of history. Though some may call them academic... We treasure their knowledge and dedication, their hard work, skill and training. Because they felt a responsibility...to honor the perfect balance and profound harmony of creation. They captured the delicate dance of the human condition -- with such undeniable skill -- that the creations of their artistry still inspire the world today. Thanks to the supporters, the sponsors, the promoters and the patrons. The champions of great art. The ones that made things possible, and influenced the legacy of human expression. They saw nobility in their gracious contributions, and honor in their vital pursuit. They wanted color, light and emotion to fill their lives... They saw brilliance and wanted to be a part of it. So you can enjoy it, you can admire it, you can collect it or invest in it... but you cannot deny great art. And though some may try to distort or degrade it... we embrace it. Because great art is something truly significant... it enriches lives and captures beauty. And the ones who helped change the world, by making great art a part of it... Well, they are truly significant too."
