As far as I can tell, this was the only great painter who acquired the ability to write eloquently about his art. And actually I'm not sure if he was "great" -- I just adore hisElegies to the Spanish Republicwherever I encounter them.

Any suggestions for other painters who are also great writers (or at least fun to read)?
