Yes, Mr Klimt!

         Grove Hill, Sunday Afternoon. Fineliner 148 x 210 mm 

For all his patterns, shapes and an inordinate amount of gilt, he was right about this. "Art is a line around your thoughts" Some may argue that he means art in whatever form one chooses but I would argue that when he says 'line' he means line. Not colour, mass or shape but line. Why? Because line has an edge, line gives form, and line defines.
