A certain alienated majesty

Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world…The inner life of a human being is a vast and varied realm.

In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty.

Both quotes, Edward Hopper, American realist painter
