Art Quotes Published in October 2003
Art Quotes for October 31

::: Shih-t' ao - Chinese artist :::

::: Sheila Chandra :::
Art Quotes for October 29
All my efforts go into creating an art that can be understood by everyone.
::: Henri Matisse - quotes :::
When we speak of Nature it is wrong to forget that we are ourselves a part of Nature. We ought to view ourselves with the same curiosity and openness with which we study a tree, the sky or a thought, because we too are linked to the entire universe.
::: Henri Matisse - quotes :::
Art Quotes for October 27
What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.
::: Eugene Delacroix :::
In the brush doing what it's doing, it will stumble on what one couldn't do by oneself.
::: Robert Motherwell :::
Art Quotes for October 24
Chagall is a greatly talented colourist and devotes himself to anything his mystical, pagan imagination impels him to. His art is very sensual.
Guillaume Apollinaire :::
But perhaps my art is the art of a lunatic, I thought, mere glittering quicksilver, a blue soul breaking in upon my pictures.
::: Marc Chagall :::
Art Quotes for October 22
We would go out and paint all day, come back, drink wine and go to bed. An ideal artist’s life.
::: Euan Uglow :::
The world is the mountain, and each action,
the shout that echoes back.
::: Rumi :::
Art Quotes for October 20
The two greatest strokes of luck that can happen to a painter are 1) to be Spanish, 2) to be called Dali.
::: Salvador Dali - quotes :::
Never trust an art dealer who'll sit in a room for more than ten minutes with a crooked picture.
::: Brett Whiteley - profile :::
Art Quotes for October 17
Never settle for anything less than your best.
::: Brian Tracy :::
But I owe something to Vincent, and that is, in the consciousness of having been useful to him, the confirmation of my own original ideas about painting. And also, at difficult moments, the remembrance that one finds others unhappier than oneself.
::: Paul Gauguin :::
Art Quotes for October 15
It’s all a big game of construction, some with a brush, some with a shovel, some choose a pen.
::: Jackson Pollock :::
When we love something it is of value to us, and when something is of value to us we spend time with it, time enjoying it and time taking care of it.
::: M. Scott Peck :::
Art Quotes for October 13
When I'm not fidgeting with infinity, I'm just fidgeting.
::: Brett Whiteley - profile :::
Everyone reaches a point in their life where they must either change or cease.
::: Brett Whiteley - profile :::
Art Quotes for October 10
Art is either plagiarism or revolution.
::: Paul Gauguin :::
So long as I am acting from duty and conviction, I am indifferent to taunts and jeers. I think they will probably do me more good than harm.
::: Winston Churchill :::
Art Quotes for October 8
I certainly hope to sell in the course of time, but I think I shall be able to influence it most effectively by working steadily on, and that at the present moment making desperate efforts to force the work I am doing now upon the public would be pretty useless.
::: Vincent van Gogh :::
It is the individual who is not interestedin his fellow men who has the greatest difficulties in life and provides the greatest injury to others.
::: Alfred Adler :::
Art Quotes for October 6
The method of painting is the natural growth out of a need. I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate them.
::: Jackson Pollock :::
Life is hardly more than a fraction of a second. Such a little time to prepare oneself for eternity!
::: Paul Gauguin :::
Art Quotes for October 3
One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.
::: Leonardo da Vinci :::
I have always lived my life by thriving on opportunity and adventure. Some of the best ideas come out of the blue, and you have to keep an open mind to see their virtue.
::: Richard Branson :::
Art Quotes for October 1
People love mystery, and that is why they love my paintings.
::: Salvador Dali - quotes :::
There comes a point where you see it all as completely empty being a popular artist to the extent that people who are not necessarily interested in art know about things or take some little interest. I think that now for me it's a burden. It's a bit hard to deal with and it wastes time as well.
::: David Hockney :::
