Cecilia Beaux

"Art is not born of beauty, It is born of life—and in one form or another, vigorous, developed life always turns toward beauty."

"I can say I have a passionate determination to overcome every obstacle. Work is a struggle to conquer something. And I do my own work with a refusal to accept defeat that might almost be called pitiful."
- Cecilia Beaux

Cecilia Beaux is a painter whom I admire and who is very under rated in my view. She rivals Sargent and Chase and many others of her generation.
Here is a link to Armand Cabrera's (who's blog is well worth checking as he's a fine painter) blog and some more info on Cecilia.
