Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Drawing is not what you see but what you must make others see.
Desire is not what you see, but what you imagine.
Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.
Great art picks up where nature ends.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.
Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together.
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.
The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.
Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.
Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.
Painting is the grandchild of nature. It is related to God.
There is no must in art because art is free.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.
