Robert Henri on 'The Artist'

"Nature reveals to him, and, seeing and feeling intensely, he paints, and whether he wills it or not each brush stroke is an exact record of such as he was at the exact moment the stroke was made."

What a true and beautiful sentiment: the work itself is a record of who the author was at the moment they created it.  Anyone can look back through their own body of work and be reminded of who they were at the moment each piece was made.  Your body of work is your history.
