  • 'We each have our own vision & a voice inside that talks only to us. We have to be able to hear it. In writing (songs) I've learned as much from Cezanne as I have from Woody Guthrie. You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.' Bob Dylan

    Harlequin, 1888–1890, Paul Cézanne

    Guthrie sang for the injustice
    a voice for the unsung wronged.
    Dylan sang against thinking
    that stood in the way of change.
    Cézanne sang for Picasso, Matisse,
    a new way of seeing ourselves.
