"James Whistler Quotes"

+ It takes a long time for a man to look like his portrait.

+ The masterpiece should appear as the flower to the painter.. perfect in its bud as in its bloom.. with no reason to explain its presence.. no mission to fulfill.. a joy to the artist, a delusion to the philanthropist.. a puzzle to the botanist.. an accident of sentiment and alliteration to the literary man.

+ I can't tell you if genius is hereditary, because heaven has granted me no offspring.

+ I maintain that two and two would continue to make four, in spite of the whine of the amateur for three, or the cry of the critic for five.

+ To say of a picture, as is often said in its praise, that it shows great and earnest labor, is to say that it is incomplete and unfit for view.

+ An artist's career always begins tomorrow.

+ An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.
