Arts Everyday Living: Einstein, Love of Art and a Way to Ease Self-Isolation

 

If I was not a physicist, I would probably be a musician.  I often think in music.  I live my day dreams in music.  I see my life in terms of music…I cannot tell if I would have done any creative work of importance in music, I do know that I get the most joy of life out of my violin.

Albert Einstein

Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin, 1918, oil on canvas, The State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia

The elegant violin by Russian artist Kuzma Petrov-Vodkin (1878-1939) symbolizes the love of music of famed physicist and humanitarian Albert Einstein (1879-1955).  Einstein believed strongly in the connection of the arts, science, and creativity.

Remember too another quote by Einstein relevant in our time of self-isolation:

Although I am a loner in daily life, my consciousness of belonging to the  invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty and justice has preserved me from feeling isolated.
