"The eye is not an instrument, no mirror - it is a living connector into our organism. It sees what it seeks and won't see what it can't understand. The eye perceives with imagination, music, rhythm and befu."
Max Slevogt, 1928, quote from: Preface from the catalog of Slevogt's exhibition at Preußische Akademie der Künste zu Berlin, 1928
