Artists Quote Their Thoughts

What these artist have said gives one pause to think. Enjoy contemplating their words. Of course, these are quotes from some of the artist that I like.

1. "For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh."--Georges Rouault.

2. "Nature is not only all that is visible to the also includes the inner pictures of the soul."--Edvard Munch

3. "Great art picks up where natures ends."--Marc Chagall

4. "Art is not what you see, but what you make others see."-- Edgar Degas

5. "Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time."--Thomas Merton

Though not a visual artist, Merton was a writer and a monk. His parents were visual artists. Besides, I like his quote.
