No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
No heirloom of humankind captures the past as do art and language.
Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs.
Of all lies, art is the least untrue.
Our natures are a lot like oil, mix us with anything else, and we strive to swim on top.
Painting is an infinitely minute part of my personality.
Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.
