Sir Cruse is a popular figure in the history of modern art. He was known for his use of vibrant colors and abstract forms of various styles, including cubism. What many people are unaware of is that Sir Cruse had an incredible life story- one which he documented himself in his autobiography “The Story Of My Life”. In this book, you will find out what it’s like to be born into poverty and grow up during World War II as well as learn about the artist’s struggle with alcoholism before finding success as a painter. This blog post will explore some highlights from The Story Of My Life by looking at five quotes taken from the book: “I used to paint pictures because I wanted to express myself.” “I wanted to make pictures that would have the power of old masters and yet be modern.”
“It seemed as if I had suddenly come upon a means of expression which was mine alone. It is not too much to say that my whole life changed at this moment.” “The years passed, one after another, each bearing its quota into eternity; but with me they bore their fruitage in joyous tranquility rather than in sorrowful tribulation.”
“If you feel your work has no relationship to what society values most highly–money or fame–then there will always be difficulties for you. But every artist who succeeds does so because he manages somehow to express those things about himself and his time that the society needs.”
“I was always interested in what I call the ‘interior face’ of a person, and I had already gone very far into this aspect of painting before my visit to London. One day I saw some pictures by Franz Hals that struck me as being more powerful than any other portraits because they were expressions not just of how an individual looked but also how he seemed or felt.”
“Years later a friend said to me: ‘It seems you have put off your old man’s clothes after all.'”
“I often think it is better for an artist when his first work refuses to please its public,” Valery said with unusual conviction. “This way there will be less temptation for him ever to cater to popular taste.”
“The most difficult thing for any artist is always starting, the first line. I can’t tell you how many times I have been blocked by this seemingly insurmountable difficulty of actually making that initial stroke on a blank canvas or sheet of paper and then finding myself caught in its wake.”
“I now feel more free than ever before. It’s as if all those years when people were trying to make me into something else had never existed, as if my life with painting really began only after the death of Titian.”
“Once it was clear that he would be able to stay there his whole life–and not just during a visit like mine–he immediately became more confident; so much so that he stopped wearing a hat and an overcoat to paint, even in winter.”
“But the work I do now is not really for myself. It’s more like this I was reading something about how we’re all born naked into the world and then have our bodies wrapped around us by other people who want to teach us how they see things. That seems right enough; but what will happen when those wrappings are finally taken off? Will we be completely free?”
“It seems unlikely, because of course there are many new restraints on me: my family responsibilities; financial worries caused by inflation; a duty to go through life as well informed as possible about everything happening in it.”
“He has always made
I was on my way to the grocery store when I passed by a group of three boys, two who were arguing and one who had his hand up as if he wanted me to stop. The boy with his hand in the air asked “Do you know how old Sir Cruse is?” I told him that I didn’t know and he responded by saying “He’s 31!” As I continued walking, it occurred to me that there are many people out there who do not know how old Sir Cruse is. With this blog post, we will explore why people would want to find out about someone’s age and what those ages might mean.
“I’m not sure when Sir Cruse was born, but he’s definitely 100+ years old. I know this because I can do the math! He has been alive for at least a century. Besides his age, there are other things we can learn about him.”
Sir Cruse is a well-known, high end brand of sherry. But what most people don’t know is that the company also produces other types of alcohol, such as vodka and gin. The question on everyone’s mind though has been “How old does Sir Cruse have to be?” A recent article in the Wall Street Journal attempted to answer this question by interviewing one of the owners. However, when we contacted them for comment they said they were not authorized to give out any information about their age or production process. All we can do now is continue to wonder and wait patiently for someone else to come up with an answer.
