Artist Quotations

The artist who aims at perfection in everything achieves it in nothing.
Eugene Delacroix

I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
John Steinbeck

Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.
Andre Gide

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.
Oscar Wilde

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.
Pablo Picasso
