Kandinsky in Munich uttered the well known words: 'Everything is permitted!' In 1961; we still live by this heritage, which in truth is inexhaustible.
Bement [an art teacher] told me things to read. He told me of exhibitions to go and see … the two books that he told me to get were Jeromy Eddy ‘Cubists and Post-impressionism’ and Kandinsky ‘On the Spiritual of Art’ … It was some time before I really begun to use the ideas. I didn’t start at until I was down in Carolina alone thinking things out for myself.
