"Otto Dix Quotes"


+ If one paints someone's portrait, one should not know him if possible. No knowledge. I do not want to know him at all. I want only to see what is there, the outside. The inner follows by itself. It is mirrored in the visible.

+ I'm such a realist, you know, that I have to see everything with my own eyes in order to confirm that it's like that. I have to experience all the ghastly, bottomless depths for life for myself.. it's for that reason that I went to war, and for that reason I volunteered.

+ Everybody thinks they know what art should be. But very few of them have the sense that is necessary to experience painting, that is the sense of sight, that sees colours and forms as living reality in the picture.

+ It's all the same to me. I must keep the first impression fresh. If it is lost, I must find it again.

+ The reason for doing it is the desire to create. I've got to do it!

+ The first impression is the right one. Once I have finished his picture, I can perhaps revise my impression and say, he really isn't such a beast as it seemed.
