We've comprehensively compiled reviews of The Art Spirit from the world's leading experts.

Jack Dorsey Co-Founder/TwitterThe first book is a book called The Art Spirit by Robert Henri, who was a painter and I know there’s a lot of affinity for painters in these parts. This is about creativity through the lens of an art student. [...] What he means by this is purely you have to be a master of your own tools. That mastership is not a destination, it is a process and it’s constant practice that gets you there. (Source)
