The Purpose of Art / From My Notebooks

The Uprising - Honoré Daumier (1860 )
The Uprising – Honoré Daumier (1860 )

From a Notebook entry dated 4-5-87 :

One of the main purposes of art is to directly or indirectly help us through the stream and flow of events that is our lives. It helps us by letting us see ourselves a little more clearly, by helping us locate ourselves in our particular time of history and by suggesting to us what we should potentially change and what we should keep the same when it comes to our lives.
