The Artist

“There are two artists myths, one says that an artist will have acclaim and rises at some point of his life but that his life will be longer than his fame and wealth. That he will fade into obscuity, all the more bitter rfor having once known such shining acceptance.

The other myth is the polar opposite of the first, and it says that a deserving artist will be ignored, impoverished, demoralized on his lifetime, onlyy to be “discovered” by later generations whi will laud him endlessly.”

Whitney Otto: The Passion Dream Book, pages 8-9
