Clara De Orestes

"The painting is poetry that is seen and not heard; and poetry is painting that is heard and not seen; are, therefore these two poems or, if you prefer, two paintings, wich use two different senses to get our inteligence. Because if one and the other are painting, they will pass to the common sense throug the noblest sense that is the eye; and if one and the other are poetry, they must go throug the less noble sense, that is to say, the ear."


Leonardo Da Vinci
