Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse.
Works of art, in my opinion, are the only objects in the material universe to possess internal order, and that is why, though I don’t believe that only art matters, I do believe in Art for Art’s sake.
E. M. Forster
A man paints with his brains and not with his hands.
A painting that is well composed is half finished.
A picture is a poem without words.
