"The modes of expression of men of genius differ as much as their souls, and it is impossible to say that in some among them, drawing and color are better or worse than in others"

- Auguste Rodin

About this Quote

Auguste Rodin's quote speaks to the distinct nature of artistic expression. He suggests that the modes of expression of males of genius vary considerably, as much as their souls. He further suggests that it is impossible to compare the quality of one artist's work to another's. He suggests that drawing and color are not much better or even worse in one artist than another, however rather that each artist has their own special design and approach to their work. This quote speaks with the idea that art is subjective and that each artist has their own unique way of expressing themselves. It likewise speaks to the concept that art is not a competition, but rather a method for each artist to express themselves and their own special vision. Rodin's quote is a pointer that each artist need to be commemorated for their own unique style and method to their work.
