Georgia O’keeffe ~ On Painting
"So I said to myself-I'll paint what I see-what the flower is to me but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking the time to look at it-I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers."
Georgia O'Keeffe on Painting
Edward Burne-jones ~ The Depths Of The Sea
The Depths of the Sea (1887) by Sir Edward Burne-Jones
Two weighless figures are buoyed up by the water surrounding them in this unusual underwaterview. Pre-Raphaelite painters such as Burne-Jones were fascinated with drowning; this preoccupution, part of a general preference for morbid subjects, was also popular with Art Nouveau.
Moore ~ On Paintings
"The many great paintings of the world, all make the point as clear as possible:
The soul cannot thrive in the absence of art. If you don't want the pleasure of art, you are not human; and if you are not human, you don't have a soul."
Georges Braque ~ Mystery Of Art
"There is only one valuable thing in art: the thing you cannot explain."
Hopper ~ On Great Art
"Great art is the outward expression of an inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world."
Chagall ~ On Talent
"My name is Marc, my emotional life is sensitive and my purse is empty, but they say I have talent."
Oscar Wilde ~ On Art
"Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known."
Edward Hopper ~ Le Bistro
This painting is one of my favorites, I can look at this image for a very long time, get lost in this painting, like I am the one sitting there, drinking a glass of wine.
Le Bistro or The Wine Shop (1909) Edward Hopper
Franz Liszt ~ Being An Artist
"Mournful and yet grand is the destiny of the artist."
Federica Nightingale ~ Fairies
Federica Nightingale (b. 1964) is an Italian collagist and poet.
What I love most about her works is the magic of it! As if she has transfered her poetry into images.
