A savage, uneducated child


"Savage nations, uneducated people and children have a great predilection for vivid colours"
Johann Wolfgang van Goethe, 1810

That quote appears in Kassia St.Clair's wonderful book 'The Secret of Colour'.

What does that therefore say about me and my artwork?...

the context of Goethe words would be interesting.
Do I detect a homage to Van Gogh in the first work and to Cecil Collins in the second?
