Peter Paul Rubens “The Four Continents”
I’m just a simple man standing alone with my old brushes, asking God for inspiration.
-Peter Paul Rubens
Henry Miller “Two Heads”
An artist earns the right to call himself a creator only when he admits to himself that he is but an instrument.
Paul Cezanne “Self Portrait”
The most seductive thing about art is the personality of the artist himself.
Norman Rockwell “All Together”
The secret to so many artists living so long is that every painting is a new adventure. So, you see, they’re always looking ahead to something new and exciting. The secret is not to look back.
Paul Gauguin “Daydreaming”
The great artist is a formulation of the greatest intelligence: he is the recipient of sensations which are the most delicate and consequently the most invisible expressions of the brain.
