A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving.
A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants.
Art is indeed not the bread but the wine of life.
- Jean Paul Richter
I can't work without a model.
I won't say I turn my back on nature ruthlessly in order to turn a study into a picture, arranging the colors, enlarging and simplifying;
but in the matter of form I am too afraid of departing from the possible and the true.
- Vincent Van Gogh
To speak of morals in art is to speak of legislature in sex.
Art is the sex of the imagination.
- George Jean Nathan
The artist does not see things as they are, but as he is.
- Alfred Tonnelle
