Where Art Begins: A Treatise on the Art of Painting by Hume Nisbet (1892)
First published in 1892, "Where art Begins" is a fantastic treatise on the subject of art, being an exploration of when, why, and how artists often begin their artistic pursuits. Based on his own experiences as an artist, the author paints a picture of what inspired him and what the usual catalysts are for those following similar paths. This volume is highly recommended for new artists and those with an interest in what motivates them, as well as those looking for some guidance in their own artistic endeavours. Contents include: "Introduction," "A Word Before," "Where Art Begins," "A Study in Light and Shadow," "The Primaries: Yellow, Red, and Blue," "Art in its Relationship to Everyday Life," "On Picture Lighting," "Ships: Ancient and Modern," "Illustrative Art: Past and Present," etc...Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.My present subject has grown up in a very congenial atmosphere. A number of sympathetic students; who learnt to appreciate my practical work; continued to draw from me some ideas partly practical; partly theoretical; on the subject which has always been a part religion with me; whether in my working or my dreaming moments-Art and its all-permeating influence over humanity in the social and spiritual conditions. I take it that Art permeates the entire body of humanity; from the flesh-devouring savage to the asphodel-adoring ?sthetic; in a greater or lesser degree; according to the sanitary conditions of their lives; and as it permeates; so it brings us closer to what we regard as human perfection.
