Art Is quotes by Edmund De Waal
#2. All art is the result of one's having been in danger of having gone through an experience all the way to the end when no one can go any further. This is what it is like to be an artist – you are unsteady on the edge of life like a swan before an anxious launching of himself on the floods where he is gently caught. #Quote by Edmund De Waal

Art Is quotes by Thomas Mann
#20. Even in a personal sense, after all, art is an intensified life. By art one is more deeply satisfied and more rapidly used up. It engraves on the countenance of its servant the traces of imaginary and intellectual adventures, and even if he has outwardly existed in cloistral tranquility, it leads in the long term to overfastidiousness, over-refinement, nervous fatigue and overstimulation, such as can seldom result from a life of the most extravagant passions and pleasures. #Quote by Thomas Mann
Art Is quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#21. The highest art is always the most religious, and the greatest artist is always a devout person. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Art Is quotes by Issey Miyake
#22. A great thing happening now in art is that artists are using the figure, the body, clothing, life. #Quote by Issey Miyake

#23. All art is an expression and extension of ourselves.. Art finds its deepest value when it is the authentic expression of a deep human experience. #Quote by Erwin Raphael McManus
Art Is quotes by Sara Genn
#24. Art is a perfectly complete cause. #Quote by Sara Genn
Art Is quotes by Jonathan Swift
#25. In oratory the greatest art is to hide art. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Art Is quotes by Jenna Cornell
#26. Art is the essence of life in creative form. If you want to compete, run a damn race. If you truly want to create essence, you need to leave competition out of it. 2014 #Quote by Jenna Cornell
Art Is quotes by Jen Selinsky
#27. Who says that art and science cannot coincide? Art is seen as subjective, and science is seen as objective. Paintings, drawings, and sculptures can contain geometric patterns. Most anything you can mix in a beaker or a Petri dish could be displayed as art. The point is that there is art in science, and there is science in art. #Quote by Jen Selinsky
Art Is quotes by Walker Evans
#28. You see, a document has use, whereas art is really useless. Therefore art is never a document, although it can adopt that style. #Quote by Walker Evans
Art Is quotes by David Mitchell
#29. But, overall, I concluded the young-hack-versus-corporate-corruption thriller had potential. (The Ghost of Sir Felix Finch whines, "But it's been done a hundred times before!" - as if there could be anything not done a hundred thousand times between Aristophanes and Andrew Void-Webber! As if Art is the What, not the How!) My #Quote by David Mitchell
Art Is quotes by A. Manette Ansay
#30. For art is about desire, is it not, and never its consummation? #Quote by A. Manette Ansay
Art Is quotes by Mark Rothko
#31. To me art is an adventure into an unknown world, which can be explored only by those willing to take the risk. #Quote by Mark Rothko
Art Is quotes by Kate Atkinson
#32. The purpose of Art is to convey the truth of a thing, not to be the truth itself. SYLVIE BERESFORD TODD #Quote by Kate Atkinson
Art Is quotes by Jamake Highwater
#33. Art is a staple of mankind ... So urgent, so utterly linked with the pulse of feeling that it becomes the singular sign of life when every other aspect of civilization fails. #Quote by Jamake Highwater
Art Is quotes by Helen Mirren
#34. Ill-informed intuition is fantastic - it's what great art is. So really old painters or writers or actors are brilliant, because they've finally reached the point when they can let go of al technique. #Quote by Helen Mirren
Art Is quotes by Rajneesh
#35. Whether you create, or you observe an objective piece of creativity, meditation should be the key. Without it, mind can only spread on the canvas its nightmares. Most of the paintings of the great painters like Paul Gaugin or Picasso are almost like vomit. They could not contain their agony and suffering - it was so much they threw it on the canvas to get relief. The real objective art is not a relief; it is not a sickness that you want to get rid of. It is a blissfulness that you want to share. And by sharing, it grows; you have more of it, the more it is shared. #Quote by Rajneesh
Art Is quotes by Stephen Fry
#36. Oscar Wilde quite rightly said, 'All art is useless'. And that may sound as if that means it's something not worth supporting. But if you actually think about it, the things that matter in life are useless. Love is useless. Wine is useless. Art is the love and wine of life. It is the extra, without which life is not worth living. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Art Is quotes by Gage Taylor
#37. One goal of my art is to help people remember why they are here now. #Quote by Gage Taylor
Art Is quotes by Ai Weiwei
#38. Life is art. Art is life. I never separate it. #Quote by Ai Weiwei
Art Is quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#39. Art is supposed to reflect your journey through real life. Your discovery of your character in solitude and around other people, the moments of clarity when you feel loved and the moment when your heart breaks so much that you can hear it crack. When you run careless and free on open fields and when you're struggling on your way home on the bus. This is what makes you a real artist. Experiences, moments, stories. Falling recklessly in love, losing someone you love and then learning to belong to yourself again. Going to new places, meeting new people, driving in the middle of the night on empty streets. Going to the ocean and staying there until 6 a.m, smoking cigarettes and talking about roses and butterflies. These are the things that will give you something worth writing about, worth singing about, worth creating art around. #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
Art Is quotes by Bruce Nauman
#40. What is it that an artist does when he is left alone in his studio? My conclusion was that if I was an artist and I was in the studio, then everything I was doing in the studio should be art ... From that point on, art became more of an activity and less of a product. #Quote by Bruce Nauman
Art Is quotes by Oscar Wilde
#41. Truth in art is the unity of a thing with itself: the outward rendered expressive of the inward: the soul made incarnate: the body instinct with spirit. For this reason there is no truth comparable to sorrow. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Art Is quotes by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
#42. Why shouldn't art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world. #Quote by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Art Is quotes by Amiri Baraka
#43. Art is a weapon in the struggle of ideas, the class struggle. #Quote by Amiri Baraka

#46. Art is moral passion married to entertainment. Moral passion without entertainment is propaganda, and entertainment without moral passion is television. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Art Is quotes by Lewis Mumford
#47. Every work of art is an abstraction from time; it denies the reality of change and decay and death. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Art Is quotes by Sebastiao Salgado
#48. For me, art is such a wide concept - anything can be art. #Quote by Sebastiao Salgado

Art Is quotes by Kami Garcia
#50. I was a fine arts major in college, and a painter for many years. And I found that, like writing, art is very similar. #Quote by Kami Garcia
Art Is quotes by Don Spencer
#51. Ideally, brewers interpret history, and through science they create art. #Quote by Don Spencer
Art Is quotes by Joan Rivers
#52. Somehow, some way, every person in the arts has to find an accommodation with disappointment and embarrassment. They are the pollen in the air we breathe. If you must go into the arts, go into them for yourself alone. On some basic level you must enjoy the act of doing it ... Otherwise, you are going to end up frustrated and unhappy. Recognition in the arts is luck and gravy. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Art Is quotes by Harold Rosenberg
#53. If being an anti-art artist is difficult, being an anti-art art historian is a hard position indeed. His doctrinal revolutionism brings forth nothing new in art but reenacts upheavals on the symbolic plane of language. It provides the consoling belief that overthrows are occurring as in the past, that barriers to creation are being surmounted, and that art is pursuing a radical purpose, even if it is only the purpose of doing away with itself. #Quote by Harold Rosenberg
Art Is quotes by John Ruskin
#54. Great art is precisely that which never was, nor will be taught, it is preeminently and finally the expression of the spirits of great men. #Quote by John Ruskin
Art Is quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#55. The voice of the Socratic dream vision is the only sign of any misgivings about the limits of logic: Perhaps – thus he might have asked himself – what is not intelligible to me is not necessarily unintelligent? Perhaps there is a realm of wisdom from which the logician is exiled? Perhaps art is even a necessary correlative of, and supplement for science? #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Art Is quotes by Iris Murdoch
#56. Art is brief. (Not in a temporal sense.) [ ... ] Words are for concealment. Art is concealment. #Quote by Iris Murdoch
Art Is quotes by Ern Malley
#57. I had read in books that art is not easy
But no one warned that the mind repeats
In its ignorance the vision of others. I am still
the black swan of trespass on alien waters. #Quote by Ern Malley
Art Is quotes by Pablo Picasso
#58. Art is an instrument in the war against the enemy. #Quote by Pablo Picasso
Art Is quotes by Hiroshi Sugimoto
#59. Art is technique: a means by which to materialize the invisible realm of the mind. #Quote by Hiroshi Sugimoto
Art Is quotes by Jim Carrey
#60. Comedy is a high form of art becaus it brings us more joy than anything else, practically but at the same time, it doesn't get a lot of respect. that's the sacrifice you make to do it. #Quote by Jim Carrey
Art Is quotes by John Ruskin
#61. Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together. #Quote by John Ruskin
Art Is quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#62. Art is an attempt to integrate evil. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Art Is quotes by Susan Quinn
#63. It is the very essence of art,' she [Hallie Flanagan:] told a group gathered in Washington ... , 'that it exceed bounds, often including those of tradition, decorum, and that mysterious thing called taste. It is the essence of art that it shatter accepted patterns, advance into unknown territory, challenge the existing order. Art is highly explosive. To be worth its salt it must have in that salt a fair sprinkling of gunpowder. #Quote by Susan Quinn
Art Is quotes by Carson Ellis
#64. I was getting paid for my art, because I was always an under-achiever. #Quote by Carson Ellis
Art Is quotes by Willa Cather
#65. Many people seem to think that art is a luxury to be imported and tacked on to life. Art springs out of the very stuff that life is made of. Most of our young authors start to write a story and make a few observations from nature to add local color. The results are invariably false and hollow. Art must spring out of the fullness and richness of life. #Quote by Willa Cather
Art Is quotes by Criss Angel
#66. One of my inspirations, Harry Houdini, remains an icon of the art because he defied our primal fears. His demonstrations in the early 20th century, especially his escape from the Chinese water torture cell, represented triumph over suffocation, drowning, disorientation and helplessness. #Quote by Criss Angel
Art Is quotes by John Waters
#67. I actually think that my films are intellectual. I think almost everything I do is intellectual, but I would never say that, because that's a compliment. That's up to others to say about me. The same way, I would never say I do art. I think art is up to history. It's up to other people to utter that word. So I try to be humble. #Quote by John Waters
Art Is quotes by Owen   Johnson
#68. Brockhurst, the champion of individualism, was soon launched on his favorite topic.

"The great fault of the American nation, which is the fault of republics, is the reduction of everything to the average. Our universities are simply the expression of the forces that are operating outside. We are business colleges purely and simply, because we as a nation have only one ideal - the business ideal."

"That's a big statement," said Regan.

"It's true. Twenty years ago we had the ideal of the lawyer, of the doctor, of the statesman, of the gentleman, of the man of letters, of the soldier. Now the lawyer is simply a supernumerary enlisting under any banner for pay; the doctor is overshadowed by the specialist with his business development of the possibilities of the rich; we have politicians, and politics are deemed impossible for a gentleman; the gentleman cultured, simple, hospitable, and kind, is of the dying generation; the soldier is simply on parade."

"Wow!" said Ricketts, jingling his chips. "They're off."

"Everything has conformed to business, everything has been made to pay. Art is now a respectable career - to whom? To the business man. Why? Because a profession that is paid $3,000 to $5,000 a portrait is no longer an art, but a blamed good business. The man who cooks up his novel according to the weakness of his public sells a hundred thousand copies. Dime novel? No; published by our most conservative publishers - one #Quote by Owen Johnson
Art Is quotes by Marty Rubin
#69. Art is the truth of the imagination. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Art Is quotes by Kapka Kassabova
#70. ...Tango is not just a dance. It's our human condition. To everyone who loves tango, it's what art is to the artist. A way to connect past and future. But you already know this my dear... #Quote by Kapka Kassabova
Art Is quotes by Al Alvarez
#71. For the artist himself art is not necessarily therapeutic; he is not automatically relieved of his fantasies by expressing them. Instead, by some perverse logic of creation, the act of formal expressions may simply make the dredged-up material more readily available to him. #Quote by Al Alvarez
Art Is quotes by Boris Pasternak
#72. Art is interested in life at the moment when the ray of power is passing through it. #Quote by Boris Pasternak
Art Is quotes by Clement Greenberg
#73. Nothing could be further from the authentic art of our time than the idea of a rupture of continuity. Art is - among other things - continuity, and unthinkable without it. #Quote by Clement Greenberg
Art Is quotes by Andy Warhol
#74. Andy Warhol: I think everybody should like everybody.
Gene Swenson: Is that what Pop Art is all about?
Andy Warhol: Yes, it's liking things. #Quote by Andy Warhol
Art Is quotes by Jhumpa Lahiri
#75. I think that the power of art is the power to wake us up, strike us to our depths, change us. What are we searching for when we read a novel, see a film, listen to a piece of music? We are searching, through a work of art, for something that alters us, that we weren't aware of before. We want to transform ourselves, just as Ovid's masterwork transformed me. #Quote by Jhumpa Lahiri
Art Is quotes by Toni Morrison
#76. Art is not mere entertainment or decoration, it has meaning, and we both want and need to fathom that meaning – not fear, dismiss, or construct superficial responses told to us by authorities. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Art Is quotes by Hans Arp
#77. I like nature but not its substitutes ... Mondrian opposed art to nature saying that art is artificial and nature is natural. I do not share this opinion ... Art's origins are natural. #Quote by Hans Arp
Art Is quotes by Edward Hopper
#78. So much of every art is an expression of the subconscious that it seems to me most of all the important qualities are put there unconsciously, and little of importance by the conscious intellect. But these are things for the psychologist to untangle. #Quote by Edward Hopper
Art Is quotes by Ai Weiwei
#79. This so-called contemporary art is not a form, but a philosophy of society, #Quote by Ai Weiwei
Art Is quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#80. A Great Work of Art is one that truly moves and inspires you. You yourself must be moved. Don't look at art with others' eyes. Don't listen to music with others' ears. You must react to art with your own feelings, your own heart and mind. #Quote by Daisaku Ikeda
Art Is quotes by Stan Brakhage
#81. Art is a sense of magic. #Quote by Stan Brakhage
Art Is quotes by Benjamin Millepied
#82. The idea that ballet is a white art is absurd and shocking, and it's gone on for too long. Nothing would make me happier than having a company that reflects society, to have dancers onstage that people can relate to. #Quote by Benjamin Millepied
Art Is quotes by Daisy Goodwin
#83. Anyone can acquire wealth, the real art is giving it away. #Quote by Daisy Goodwin
Art Is quotes by Jean Renoir
#84. All great art is abstract. #Quote by Jean Renoir
Art Is quotes by John Galsworthy
#85. Art is the one form of human energy in the whole world, which really works for union, and destroys the barriers between man and man. It is the continual, unconscious replacement, however fleeting, of oneself by another; the real cement of human life; the everlasting refreshment and renewal. For, what is grievous, dompting, grim, about our lives is that we are shut up within ourselves, with an itch to get outside ourselves. And to be stolen away from ourselves by Art is a momentary relaxation from that itching, a minute's profound, and as it were secret, enfranchisement. #Quote by John Galsworthy
Art Is quotes by William Shakespeare
#86. The object of Art is to give life a shape. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Art Is quotes by Norman Lindsay
#87. Every mind which has given itself to self-expression in art is aware of a directing agency outside its conscious control which it has agreed to label 'inspiration'. #Quote by Norman Lindsay
Art Is quotes by ELLE NICOLAI
#88. Art is a consciousness-provoking vessel. #Quote by ELLE NICOLAI
Art Is quotes by Stephen Sondheim
#89. Work is what you do for others, liebchen. Art is what you do for yourself. #Quote by Stephen Sondheim
Art Is quotes by Diego Rivera
#90. Art is like ham-it nourishes people. #Quote by Diego Rivera
Art Is quotes by Harry Crews
#91. The real artist with no tear in his eye and no sadness in his heart, puts the pages in the fire and does it again!"
"All art is a metaphor it's by telling you one thing when your mean something else.
The Old Man in the Sea is not about fishing!"
"Writing a book is like torture that you don't know, but after it's done and there it is. It's a joy like unlike anything else, I think it's the closest that a man can come to knowing what is feels like to have a baby. #Quote by Harry Crews
Art Is quotes by William Blake
#92. The human mind cannot go beyond the gift of God, the Holy Ghost. To suppose that art can go beyond the finest specimens of art that are now in the world is not knowing what art is; it is being blind to the gifts of the spirit. #Quote by William Blake
Art Is quotes by Seth Godin
#93. Art is the act of navigating without a map. #Quote by Seth Godin
Art Is quotes by Donatella Versace
#94. I have long been a fan and enthusiast where art is concerned. #Quote by Donatella Versace
Art Is quotes by John Dewey
#95. As long as art is the beauty parlor of civilization, neither art nor civilization is secure. #Quote by John Dewey
Art Is quotes by Lorine Niedecker
#96. Strange - we are always inhabiting more than one realm of existence - but they all fit in if the art is right. #Quote by Lorine Niedecker
Art Is quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#97. Art is a means of memorialization of the past, a record of a rapidly vanishing world; a means of exorcising, at least temporarily, the ravages of homesickness. To speak of 'what is past, or passing or to come'-in the most meticulous language thereby to assure its permanence; to honor those we've loved and learned from and must outlive. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Art Is quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#98. The job of art is not to store moments of experience but to explore environments that are otherwise invisible. Art is not a retrieval system of precious moments of past cultures. Art has a live, ongoing function.
McLuhan CD-ROM #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Art Is quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#99. I've never thought of writing as the mere arrangement of words on the page but the attempted embodiment of a vision; a complex of emotions; raw experience. The effort of memorable art is to evoke in the reader or spectator emotions appropriate to that effort. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Art Is quotes by Melvin Glover
#100. If Graffiti is art and art is a crime then how come piccaso never done time? #Quote by Melvin Glover
Art Is quotes by Robert Genn
#101. The thing about art is that life is in no danger of being meaningless, #Quote by Robert Genn
Art Is quotes by Ava DuVernay
#102. A black woman making art is a disruptive act. Every story that I tell as a woman is a political act, even if I want to tell a 'silly love story.' The fact it exists through my gaze is radical. #Quote by Ava DuVernay
Art Is quotes by Randall Jarrell
#103. Goethe said that the worst thing in art is technical facility accompanied by triteness. Many an artist, like God, has never needed to think twice about anything. His works are the mad scene from Giselle , on ice skates: he weeps, pulls out his hair holding his wrists like Lifar and tells you what Life is, all at a gliding forty miles an hour. #Quote by Randall Jarrell
Art Is quotes by Brian Raif
#104. Art is the overflow of emotion into action. #Quote by Brian Raif
Art Is quotes by Hans Hofmann
#105. To me, art is the glorification of the human spirit. #Quote by Hans Hofmann
Art Is quotes by Auguste Rodin
#106. Art is contemplation. It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into nature and which there divines the spirit of which nature herself is animated. #Quote by Auguste Rodin
Art Is quotes by Zoey Deutch
#107. The kickboxing and the martial arts is so fun. It's like anything in school. You're not going to retain information unless you're interested in it. #Quote by Zoey Deutch
Art Is quotes by Armin Houman
#108. Art is not about achievement, but rather a new perspective to look from. #Quote by Armin Houman
Art Is quotes by Brian Eno
#109. One of the things you do when you make a piece of art is you try to make the world you'd rather be in. #Quote by Brian Eno
Art Is quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#110. In the entr'acte Levin and Pestsov fell into an argument upon the merits and defects of music of the Wagner school. Levin maintained that the mistake of Wagner and all his followers lay in their trying to take music into the sphere of another art, just as poetry goes wrong when it tries to paint a face as the art of painting ought to do, and as an instance of this mistake he cited the sculptor who carved in marble certain poetic phantasms flitting round the figure of the poet on the pedestal. "These phantoms were so far from being phantoms that they were positively clinging on the ladder," said Levin. [ ... ] Pestsov maintained that art is one, and that it can attain its highest manifestations only by conjunction with all kinds of art. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Art Is quotes by Ernest L. Boyer
#111. Art is humanity's most essential, most universal language. It is not a frill, but a necessary part of communication. The quality of civilization can be measured through its music, dance, drama, architecture, visual art and literature. We must give our children knowledge and understanding of civilization's most profound works. #Quote by Ernest L. Boyer
Art Is quotes by Gary Holland
#112. I endeavor to trigger positive, empowering, life-giving emotion - I believe art is that powerful. #Quote by Gary Holland
Art Is quotes by Peter Sotos
#113. Once again, I think there is little art being done that really owns up to such intense possibilities. #Quote by Peter Sotos
Art Is quotes by Elizabeth Catlett
#114. Art is only important to the extent that it aids in the liberation of our people. #Quote by Elizabeth Catlett
Art Is quotes by Jean Cocteau
#115. The reward of art is not fame or success but intoxication: that is why so many bad artists are unable to give it up. #Quote by Jean Cocteau
Art Is quotes by Izaak Walton
#116. O, sir, doubt not that Angling is an art; is it not an art to deceive a trout with an artificial fly? #Quote by Izaak Walton
Art Is quotes by C.S. Lewis
#117. Whatever in a work of art is not used, is doing harm. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Art Is quotes by Jean Tinguely
#118. Art is the distortion of an unendurable reality ... Art is correction, modification of a situation; art is communication, connection ... Art is social, self-sufficient, and total. #Quote by Jean Tinguely
Art Is quotes by Robert Henri
#119. Art is an outsider, a gypsy over the face of the earth. #Quote by Robert Henri
Art Is quotes by David Berkowitz Chicago
#120. Art is like hard digging. Without daily searching, nothing can be found. #Quote by David Berkowitz Chicago
Art Is quotes by Chaim Potok
#121. Art is a person's private vision expressed in aesthetic forms. #Quote by Chaim Potok
Art Is quotes by W.B.Yeats
#122. What is clearest, most memorable and important about art is its coming into being, and the world's best works of art, while telling of very diverse matters, are really telling about their birth. #Quote by W.B.Yeats
Art Is quotes by Freeman Patterson
#123. Not every work of art is or need be a heavily profound statement ... #Quote by Freeman Patterson
Art Is quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#124. This, then, is the ultimate, that is only, consolation: simply that someone shares some of your own feelings and has made of these a work of art which you have the insight, sensitivity, and - like it or not - peculiar set of experiences to appreciate. Amazing thing to say, the consolation of horror in art is that it actually intensifies our panic, loudens it on the sounding-board of our horror-hollowed hearts, turns terror up full blast, all the while reaching for that perfect and deafening amplitude at which we may dance to the bizarre music of our own misery. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Art Is quotes by Alberto Giacometti
#125. (Art is) the residue of vision. #Quote by Alberto Giacometti
Art Is quotes by Paula Rego
#126. Art is the only place you can do what you like. That's freedom. #Quote by Paula Rego
Art Is quotes by Robert Fry
#127. Art is a passion or it is nothing #Quote by Robert Fry
Art Is quotes by Thornton Wilder
#129. Art is not only the desire to tell one's secret; it is the desire to tell it and hide it at the same time. #Quote by Thornton Wilder
Art Is quotes by Aeschylus
#130. Art is far feebler than necessity. #Quote by Aeschylus
Art Is quotes by Joseph Beuys
#131. Art is not there simply to be understood ... It is more the sense of an indication or suggestion. #Quote by Joseph Beuys
Art Is quotes by Norbert Lynton
#132. All human action is expressive; a gesture is an intentionally expressive action. All art is expressive - of its author and of the situation in which he works - but some art is intended to move us through visual gestures that transmit, and perhaps give release to, emotions and emotionally charged messages. Such art is expressionist. #Quote by Norbert Lynton
Art Is quotes by Anthony Burgess
#133. A work of art is somehow organic, and to slash a painting or smash a statue is not just an offence against property: it is an offence against life. #Quote by Anthony Burgess
Art Is quotes by Clement Greenberg
#134. The reality of art is disclosed only in experience, not in reflection upon experience. #Quote by Clement Greenberg
Art Is quotes by Richard Prince
#135. The problem with art is, it's not like the game of golf where you put the ball in the hole. There's no umpire; there's no judge. There are no rules. It's one of its problems. But it's also one of the great things about art. It becomes a question of what lasts. #Quote by Richard Prince
Art Is quotes by Andy Warhol
#136. Art is what you can get away with. #Quote by Andy Warhol
Art Is quotes by Andre Gide
#137. The only really Christian art is that which, like St. Francis, does not fear being wedded to poverty. This rises far above art-as-ornament. #Quote by Andre Gide
Art Is quotes by Hermann Hesse
#138. Art is the contemplation of the world in a state of grace. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Art Is quotes by Anonymous
#139. An artist's job is to inspire, from the Latin inspirare: to breathe into. The primary function of art is to inspire new thought shaped by emotions using the creative mediums we master - be it painting, music, design, craft, or photography. #Quote by Anonymous
Art Is quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#140. An artist must be pure of heart," said Gerdes, "for true art is the expression of the artist's innermost being. To create beauty, one must be beautiful" - she pressed her hands to her bosom - "in here, in your heart of hearts. #Quote by Stephen R. Lawhead
Art Is quotes by Paul Valery
#141. No work of art is ever completed, it is only abandoned. #Quote by Paul Valery

#143. Art is not about something, Art is something #Quote by Sarah Bernhardt
Art Is quotes by Jarod Kintz
#144. What is art? Art is tar, rearranged. Art is tar on canvas or tar on tarp or tar on a naked body. Art is a bird chirping changed into something visual. Art is an image of a thousand beaks breaking into the office of a quack doctor. I know that doctor, and I've personally spoken to ten of those beaks. Art is rhythm, two hands clapping at a urinal while a third shakes off pee to the beat. Good art stays with you your whole life, especially if that good art is a tattoo. Good art is my name, written backwards, inked on your upper lip in a furry font. Art imitates life, just as life imitates Orafoura. Art can be anything from a Manet to a Monet to a painting of money to a missile. Art can save the world, or devastate it. (We could drop another big bomb on Japan, though I'm not advocating dumping Basquiat paintings on Hiroshima). Art rhymes with a bodily function, and everybody should let their creativity rip everywhere from the privacy of their bathrooms to small heated boxes with four of their closest friends. Art is thinking outside that box, and desperately trying to escape. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Art Is quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#145. The work of art is the object seen sub specie aeternitatis; and the good life is the world seen sub specie aeternitatis. This is the connection between art and ethics.
The usual way of looking at things sees objects as it were from the midst of them, the view sub specie aeternitatis from outside.
In such a way that they have the whole world as background. #Quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Art Is quotes by Julian Casablancas
#146. Art is the image of life, it's purpose simply to enhance it. #Quote by Julian Casablancas
Art Is quotes by Anselm Kiefer
#147. Buying art is not understanding art. #Quote by Anselm Kiefer
Art Is quotes by Marcel Duchamp
#148. I have drawn people's attention to the fact that art is a mirage. A mirage, just like the oasis that appears in the desert. It is very beautiful, until the moment when you die of thirst, obviously. But we do not die of thirst in the field of art. The mirage has substance. #Quote by Marcel Duchamp
Art Is quotes by Seth Godin
#149. Art is what we call ... the thing an artist does.
It's not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human.
Art is not in the ... eye of the beholder. It's in the soul of the artist. #Quote by Seth Godin
Art Is quotes by Natasha Pulley
#150. What's that?' Thaniel said, curious. The postmarks and stamps weren't English or Japanese.

'A painting. There's a depressed Dutchman who does countryside scenes and flowers and things. It's ugly, but I have to maintain the estates in Japan and modern art is a good investment. #Quote by Natasha Pulley
Art Is quotes by Matthew Woodring Stover
#151. It is a truism that when one is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. The glory of art is that it can show this proverbial hammer how everything looks to a screwdriver--and to a plowshare, and to an earthenware pot. If reality is the sum of our perceptions, to acquire more varying points of view is to acquire, literally, more reality. #Quote by Matthew Woodring Stover
Art Is quotes by Arthur Symons
#152. All art is a form of artifice.For in art there can be no prejudices. #Quote by Arthur Symons
Art Is quotes by John O'Callaghan
#153. Music, and art for that matter, to me is not about true meaning to anyone else but yourself. If I told you the meaning of it all from my point of view it would erase the intimacy of art. I feel like art is up for interpretation, so if I told you my meaning, how could you truly relate it to anything that "you" personally are going through?? That is the beauty of art and music in particular #Quote by John O'Callaghan
Art Is quotes by Christopher Ricks
#154. A great work of art is one that continues to repay attention. #Quote by Christopher Ricks
Art Is quotes by Hermann Hesse
#155. Art is contemplation of the world in a state of grace and imaginatively reflecting that subjective understanding. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Art Is quotes by Charles Baudelaire

Sisyphean patience for its song,
Time, Hippocrates remarked, is short

Art Is quotes by Ala Bashir
#157. The truth is far beyond what we can see. Therefore my art is an invitation to comprehend this fact. #Quote by Ala Bashir
Art Is quotes by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
#158. Art is about emotion; if art needs to be explained it is no longer art. #Quote by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Art Is quotes by David Bayles
#159. In essence, art lies embedded in the conceptual leap between pieces, not in the pieces themselves. And simply put, there's a greater conceptual jump from one work of art to the next than from one work of craft to the next. The net result is that art is less polished - but more innovative - than craft. The differences between five Steinway grand pianos - demonstrably works of consummate craftsmanship - are small compared to the differences between the five Beethoven Piano concerti you might perform on those instruments. A #Quote by David Bayles
Art Is quotes by Irving Stone

Art Is quotes by T.C. Boyle

Art Is quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#162. Art is fueled by rebellion: the need, in some amounting to obsessions, to resist what is, to defy one's elders, even to the point of ostracism; to define oneself, and by extension one's generation, as new, novel, ungovernable. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Art Is quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#163. Art is the highest task and the proper metaphysical activity of this life. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Art Is quotes by Rachel Hartman
#164. For me, art is the desire to preserve the intangible feeling of such a moment, hidden in all the littlest details, and then to communicate that to others. #Quote by Rachel Hartman
Art Is quotes by Mas Oyama
#165. The path of Martial Arts begins and ends with courtesy. So be genuinely polite on every occasion. #Quote by Mas Oyama
Art Is quotes by T. S. Eliot
#166. Art never improves, but ... the material of art is never quite the same. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Art Is quotes by Joshua Foa Dienstag
#167. Tragic art is the organization of a small portion of an otherwise meaningless world that gives purpose to an individual existence. #Quote by Joshua Foa Dienstag
Art Is quotes by Jesse L. Martin
#168. This world is not one color or culture. Everybody has a story. To tell that story or see that story reflected through art is extremely valuable to the community. The arts belong to everyone and our work should reflect that diversity. #Quote by Jesse L. Martin
Art Is quotes by Plato
#169. In which, if any, of these constitutions do we find the art of ruling being practiced in the actual government of men? What art is more difficult to learn? But what art is more important to us? #Quote by Plato
Art Is quotes by Neal Cassady
#170. Art is good when it springs from necessity. This kind of origin is the guarantee of its value; there is no other. #Quote by Neal Cassady
Art Is quotes by Jacques Ranciere
#171. Critical art is an art that aims to produce a new perception of the world, and therefore to create a commitment to its transformation. This schema, very simple in appearance, is actually the conjunction of three processes: first, the production of a sensory form of 'strangeness'; second, the development of an awareness of the reason for that strangeness and third, a mobilization of individuals as a result of that awareness. #Quote by Jacques Ranciere
Art Is quotes by Eric Hoffer
#172. The Paleolithic hunters who painted the unsurpassed animal murals on the ceiling of the cave at Altamira had only rudimentary tools. Art is older than production for use, and play older than work. Man was shaped less by what he had to do than by what he did in playful moments. It is the child in man that is the source of his uniqueness and creativeness, and the playground is the optimal milieu for the unfolding of his capacities. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Art Is quotes by Jada Pinkett Smith
#173. I feel like, to me, art is a ladder to God, in my own opinion, you know. And so, for me, the more people that I can reach through many different artistic avenues, the better. #Quote by Jada Pinkett Smith
Art Is quotes by Frederick Sommer
#174. Art is not arbitrary. A fine painting is not there by accident; it is not arrived at by chance. We are sensitive to tonalities. #Quote by Frederick Sommer
Art Is quotes by Frank Lloyd Wright
#175. Art is a discovery and development of elementary principles of nature into beautiful forms suitable for human use. #Quote by Frank Lloyd Wright
Art Is quotes by Carl Andre
#176. I'm afraid we get a great deal of our exposure to art through magazines and through slides and I think this is dreadful, this is anti-art because art is direct experience with something in the world and photography is just a rumor, a kind of pornography of art. #Quote by Carl Andre
Art Is quotes by Seneca The Elder
#177. All art is an imitation of nature. #Quote by Seneca The Elder
Art Is quotes by Robert Gottlieb
#178. How can educated and sophisticated viewers react so differently to a work of art? Is it just Kulture Klash? No, since most of the time there's no Klash at all. On the occasions when we disagree, it may be because we're looking for different things in dance. #Quote by Robert Gottlieb
Art Is quotes by Jennifer McMahon
#179. No one sees the world like you do, Emma. Creating art is about sharing your own personal vision with the world. Taking something no one else can see and bringing it to life. #Quote by Jennifer McMahon
Art Is quotes by Brian Eno
#180. Rationality is what we do to organize the world, to make it possible to predict. Art is the rehearsal for the inapplicability and failure of that process. #Quote by Brian Eno
Art Is quotes by George Lucas

Art Is quotes by Louise Bourgeois
#183. Everywhere in the modern world there is neglect, the need to be recognized, which is not satisfied. Art is a way of recognizing oneself, which is why it will always be modern. #Quote by Louise Bourgeois
Art Is quotes by John Fowles
#184. The practise of an art is essential to the whole man, not because of what art is but because of what art does to the artist. #Quote by John Fowles
Art Is quotes by Leopold Sedar Senghor
#185. Art is animated by invisible forces that rule the universe. #Quote by Leopold Sedar Senghor
Art Is quotes by Jonathan Hickman
#186. There's that old cliche that art is never finished, only abandoned. That's the nice thing about comics. It forces you to abandon it long before maybe you're ready to let it go. #Quote by Jonathan Hickman
Art Is quotes by Baker Brownell
#187. Art arises in those strange complexities of action that are called human beings. It is a kind of human behavior. As such it is not magic, except as human beings are magical. Nor is it concerned in absolutes, eternities, "forms," beyond those that may reside in the context of the human being and be subject to his vicissitudes. Art is not an inner state of consciousness, whatever that may mean. Neither is it essentially a supreme form of communication. Art is human behavior, and its values are contained in human behavior. #Quote by Baker Brownell
Art Is quotes by R.C. Sproul
#188. What makes art Christian art? Is it simply Christian artists painting biblical subjects like Jeremiah? Or, by attaching a halo, does that suddenly make something Christian art? Must the artist's subject be religious to be Christian? I don't think so. There is a certain sense in which art is its own justification. If art is good art, if it is true art, if it is beautiful art, then it is bearing witness to the Author of the good, the true, and the beautiful #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Art Is quotes by Tony Leuzzi
#189. Writing is not always a priority. . . .I only write those things that are necessary for me to write. I love to write, and when I'm not writing, I often feel as if I'm betraying my art, my gift, my calling, but that sensation is probably hubris or neurosis as much as anything else. The problem, and one of the joys of writing poetry, is that none of us can really count on entering the canon. The chances are that none of our work will survive long after we're gone. That's just the way it is. To feel otherwise is foolish. we write in competition with the dead for the attention of the unborn. We are writing poems that are trying to take the attention of people away from Sappho, Shakespeare, Whitman, and Baudelaire. Good luck to you! There's a built-in failure to writing poetry that I find comforting.
If you know you're doomed to failure, then you can work freely. People who think their work is going to last, or that it matters, well . . . I always try to disabuse my students of their desire to write for fame. I ask them, "Who here has read Shakespeare?" Everyone raises his or her hand. We agree that his work is immortal, then I remind them: "he's still dead. He's as dead as he'd have been if you hadn't read him; and you'll be dead too someday, no matter how well you write." To sacrifice your life for your art is an appalling notion. On the other hand, I have been called to be a poet, ad it's an unimaginably rich gift. Like every artist, I know that in order to be a moral, eff #Quote by Tony Leuzzi
Art Is quotes by Tinsel Korey
#190. With acting, I'm taking somebody else's work and interpreting it. Whereas with music, it's organic. It's completely myself. Nobody else is really involved with the beginning stages of it. Art is something that I haven't really put out to the public. There's a couple pictures on MySpace, but I haven't done a gallery opening or anything like that. Art is very personal to me. I haven't really shared it with too many people. #Quote by Tinsel Korey
Art Is quotes by Paul Gauguin
#191. Proficiency in art is a contract with your self and the empowerment of your self. Not all of us demand or even desire proficiency, but for those who do it's necessary to temper the influence of groups. And while some artists think history is bunk, the historical evidence is overwhelming: "In my isolation I grow stronger." #Quote by Paul Gauguin
Art Is quotes by Dale Carnegie
#192. All art is autobiographical. You can only create what you are. #Quote by Dale Carnegie
Art Is quotes by Oscar Wilde
#193. The mark of all good art is not that the thing done is done exactly or finely, for machinery may do as much, but that it is worked out with the head and the workman's heart. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Art Is quotes by Guy Davenport
#194. A work of art is a form that articulates forces, making them intelligible. #Quote by Guy Davenport

Art Is quotes by Nick Bantock
#196. I have no idea of what it's going to look like when I start a piece. Making art is like having a relationship. You want to bring in some ideas, but if you don't allow it to develop naturally and speak to you as it develops, you end up imposing and projecting upon it. #Quote by Nick Bantock
Art Is quotes by James Baldwin
#197. Art has to be a kind of confession. I don't mean a true confession in the sense of that dreary magazine. The effort it seems to me, is: if you can examine and face your life, you can discover the terms with which you are connected to other lives, and they can discover them, too - the terms with which they are connected to other people. This has happened to every one of us, I'm sure. You read something which you thought only happened to you, and you discovered it happened 100 years ago to Dostoyevsky. This is a very great liberation for the suffering, struggling person, who always thinks that they are alone. This is why art is important. Art would not be important if life were not important, and life is important. Most of us, no matter what we say, are walking in the dark, whistling in the dark. Nobody knows what is going to happen to them from one moment to the next, or how one will bear it. This is irreducible. And it's true for everybody. Now, it is true that the nature of society is to create, among its citizens, an illusion of safety; but it is also absolutely true that the safety is always necessarily an illusion. Artists are here to disturb the peace. They have to disturb the peace. Otherwise, chaos. #Quote by James Baldwin
Art Is quotes by Oscar Wilde
#198. The public make use of the classics of a country as a means of checking the progress of Art. They degrade the classics into authorities ... A fresh mode of Beauty is absolutely distasteful to them, and whenever it appears they get so angry and bewildered that they always use two stupid expressions
one is that the work of art is grossly unintelligible; the other, that the work of art is grossly immoral. What they mean by these words seems to me to be this. When they say a work is grossly unintelligible, they mean that the artist has said or made a beautiful thing that is new; when they describe a work as grossly immoral, they mean that the artist has said or made a beautiful thing that is true. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Art Is quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#199. Art is the child of nature in whom we trace the features of the mothers face. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Art Is quotes by Eric Drooker
#200. Art grabs people by their eyeballs, it seduces them ... art is a means to an end rather than simply an end in itself. #Quote by Eric Drooker
Art Is quotes by Fede Alvarez

Art Is quotes by Art Hochberg

Art Is quotes by Abraham Verghese
#203. My desire to be a physician had a lot to do with that sense of medicine as a ministry of healing, not just a science. And not even just a science and an art, but also a calling, also a ministry. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Art Is quotes by John Fowles
#204. It's rather like your voice. You put up with your voice and speak with it because you haven't any choice. But it's what you say that counts. It's what distinguishes all great art from the other kind. #Quote by John Fowles
Art Is quotes by Peggy Guggenheim

Art Is quotes by Rhianna Pratchett
#206. A lot of young girls don't realise how diverse the career opportunities are in games development. Many think that you need elite math skills and a vast knowledge of all things tech to work in games, and haven't thought about avenues like design, producing, art, writing or composing. #Quote by Rhianna Pratchett
Art Is quotes by Al Yankovic

Art Is quotes by Wassily Kandinsky
#208. A painter, who finds no satisfaction in mere representation, however artistic, in his longing to express his inner life, cannot but envy the ease with which music, the most non-material of the arts today, achieves this end. He naturally seeks to apply the methods of music to his own art. #Quote by Wassily Kandinsky
Art Is quotes by Axl Rose
#209. When I was a kid, I was told rock n' roll wasn't music. It wasn't art. Queen was my proof, my evidence, that these people were wrong - and they meant everything to me. #Quote by Axl Rose
Art Is quotes by Nick Hornby
#210. Of course Tucker Crowe was in pain when he made [the record], but he couldn't just march into a recording studio and start howling. He'd have sounded mad and pathetic. He had to calm the rage, tame it and shape it so that it could be contained in the tight-fitting songs. Then he had to dress it up so that it sounded more like itself. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Art Is quotes by Kalan Sherrard
#211. I'm interested in confronting police brutality and police abuse of cracking down on street performers and street artists, but also in valorizing street art as legitimate performance within the artistic sphere, where it's so often conflated with pan-handling and begging and not "successful" art. I want to change laws around street performance. #Quote by Kalan Sherrard

#213. When science, art, literature, and philosophy are simply the manifestation of personality they are on a level where glorious and dazzling achievements are possible, which can make a man's name live for thousands of years. #Quote by Denis Diderot
Art Is quotes by Kathryn Harrison
#214. We know the seductive alchemy of art. To transform private anguish into a narrative of truth, if not beauty; to make sense where there was none; to bring order out of chaos - these are the promises art makes. #Quote by Kathryn Harrison
Art Is quotes by William Penn
#215. Wear none of thine own Chains; but keep free, whilst thou art free. #Quote by William Penn
Art Is quotes by Kurt Schwitters

Art Is quotes by Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera
