PicassoEveryone wants to understand painting. Why don't they try to understand the singing of birds? People love the night, a flower, everything which surrounds them without trying to understand them. But painting…that they must understand.
-Pablo Picasso interview in Cahiers d'Art 1935
Painting is a state of being…Painting is self-discovery. Every good painter paints what he is.
When you come right down to it, all you have is yourself. Your self is a sun with a thousand rays in your belly. The rest is nothing. -Pablo Picasso
There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn't have any beginning or any end. He didn't mean it as a compliment, but it was. It was a fine compliment. -Jackson Pollock
Painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war for attack and defense against the enemy. -Pablo Picasso 1945
It seems to me madness to wake up in the morning and do something other than paint, considering that one may not wake up the following morning. -Frank Auerbach quoted in The Observer (1986)
