Vincent Van Gogh
"I meant to tell you about some pencils I've discovered, made by Faber. They're this thick, very soft, and a superior quality to carpenters pencils. They produce a capital black and are very agreeable for working on large scale studies."
Vincent Van Gogh in a letter to the Dutch painter, Anton van Rappard
"In spite of everything I shall rise again:
I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing."
Vincent van Gogh, Letter 136, September 24, 1880
