Drawing Lessons: Picasso and Kentridge

Two brilliant answers to the question of "what is it that I do" without resorting to language. 

"The irony of asking the artist to communicate his meaning through words, after the painting is complete, is that it was the inability of language to get at the thing which led him to paint it in the first place. "

I'm comparing the lessons found in these two images, along with text from Kentridge's "Drawing Lessons" as the topic for my first year paper at DIAP.
