“To put down an ideogram of a table so that people will recognize it as a table is not the work of a painter, but to sense it for a moment as a magic carpet with a leg hanging down at each corner is the beginning of a painter's imagination.”     Frank Auerbach

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”  Albert Einstein

"One cannot depend on the eyes, when one's imagination is out of focus"   Mark Twain

“Imagination is the highest kite one can fly.”      Lauren Bacall

The third angel of the Daughters of Art’ is ‘Imagination’.  Art provides a means to express one’s imagination in non-grammatical ways that are not tied to the formality of spoken or written language.  Art communicates far more than words - as goes the saying:  ‘a picture is worth a 1000 words’.  Imagination helps provide meaning to experience, understanding to knowledge and making sense of the world.  Imagination plays a key role in the learning process.  It is instructive to encourage parents to read to their children so that they can experience storytelling and hear words which “evoke worlds.”

Imagination guides novelty in science, art and social affairs.  It connects the Good (‘Religion’), the True (‘Science’) and the Beautiful (‘Art’ & ‘Music’) as nothing else can.
