max slevogt

sometimes you will meet painters,
and while you gaze at their 'oeuvre', their collection of works, you notice a sort of hunger.
some people are just obsessed by painting.
here's Max slevogt, a very passionate german painter.
and i notice the hunger

there's a quote comming from him, i remember. he said
'everytime i see a tintoretto i get exited about painting. everytime i see a rembrandt i just want to give up.'

a very familiar feeling
