* Josef Albers quotes
+ I do not like to be a prophet. I like better to paint than to predict what the next painters will do. Though I have a feeling that consideration of order is very much in the air.
* Jean Arp quotes
::: arp quotes :::
+ Art is a fruit that grows in man, like a fruit on a plant, or a child in its mother’s womb.
* Frank Auerbach quotes
+ I think that the very earliest influence was a horror of having to work in a bank or an office, a desire for a free and creative life.
* Georg Baselitz quotes
+ ...I paint German artists whom I admire. I paint their pictures, their work as painters, and their portraits too. But oddly enough, each of these portraits ends up as a picture of a woman with blonde hair. I myself have never been able to work out why this happens.
* Joseph Beuys quotes
::: beuys quotes :::
+ I wished to go completely outside and to make a symbolic start for my enterprise of regenerating the life of humankind within the body of society and to prepare a positive future in this context.
* Max Beckmann quotes
+ My heart beats more for a raw, average vulgar art, which doesn't live between sleepy fairy-tale moods and poetry but rather concedes a direct entrance to the fearful, commonplace, splendid and the average grotesque banality in life.
* Otto Dix quotes
::: dix quotes :::
+ It's all the same to me. I must keep the first impression fresh. If it is lost, I must find it again.
* George Grosz quotes
::: grosz quotes :::
+ My aim is to be understood by everyone. I reject the 'depth' that people demand nowadays, into which you can never descend without a diving bell crammed with cabbalistic bullshit and intellectual metaphysics.
* Hans Hofmann quotes
+ A work of art is a world in itself reflecting senses and emotions of the artist's world.
* Anselm Kiefer quotes
+ I believe art has to take responsibility but it should not give up being art.
* Martin Kippenberger quotes
+ I am rather like a travelling salesman. I deal in ideas. I do much more for people than just paint them pictures.
* Ernst Ludwig Kirchner quotes
+ My paintings are allegories not portraits.
* August Macke quotes
::: macke quotes :::
+ The most important thing for me is the direct observation of nature in its light-filled existence.

* Helmut Newton quotes

+ The photographs don't arouse me. All I can think about is the hard work it took to make them.
* Albert Oehlen quotes
+ I painted with acrylic paint, and the reason why I went to oil was mainly because I didn’t control it. I was looking for the insecurity of it. I mean, I might have found another reason later, but at that moment, the reason was I was looking for the insecurity.
* Gerhard Richter quotes
+ I can't always reach the image in my mind.. almost never, in fact.. so that the abstract image I create is not quite there, but it gets to the point where I can leave it.
