A writer should write with his eyes and a painter paint with his ears.
It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.
Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?
To put down an ideogram of a table so that people will recognize it as a table is not the work of a painter, but to sense it for a moment as a magic carpet with a leg hanging down at each corner is the beginning of a painter's imagination.
Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter's soul.
Vincent Van Gogh

Every song has a composer, every book has an author, every car has a maker, every painting has a painter, and every building has a builder.

A thousand painters ought to be killed yearly. Say what you like: I'm every inch a painter.
The painter must enclose himself within his work; he must respond not with words, but with paintings.
