With this new blog, I want to bring you nearer to the fascinating area of collecting autographs. I concentrate my collection on fine signed photographs and on letters or fine signed books. As well I like exhibition catalogues (best if signed) very much.
When you look at good photos, there is a vibration which you can feel, you can be next into the situation captured by the camera. This is simply fascinating!
When you read a letter, you are overlooking the mind and the thoughts of the artists. Sometimes they were written in hazzle, sometimes with a calm. For us who are living in the Facebook-Age and get more & more uncommon to write something by hand, a fairly different feeling of looking at the emotions in the words as well in the handwriting. Faboulous !
I also get more and more inspired to integrate some of the autographs and integrate the content into something new. For me autographs are ART.
And now, please walk through and look at the most iconic artists of the 19th and 20th century. Enjoy ! and feed back is always welcome! I will try to write one or 2 times per month.
