Early Abstract Expressionist Richard Pousette-Dart, Born Today in 1916

“I really am not interested in abstract art. I'm interested in anything … that is wonderful, that is a miracle to me, that is alive. And it doesn’t matter whether somebody paints every hair on someone’s head or whether they paint circles and squares or whatever is true to them to do, as long as they do something that’s wonderful, I really don’t care. And I consider all art abstract, anyway.” —Richard Pousette-Dart
