Carriera Paintings quotes by Giorgio Vasari
#1. In our own time it has been seen ... that simple children, roughly brought up in the wilderness, have begun to draw by themselves, impelled by their own natural genius, instructed solely by the example of these beautiful paintings and sculptures of Nature. #Quote by Giorgio Vasari
Carriera Paintings quotes by R.K. Lilley
#2. You put your soul into those paintings, and nothing in this world is more beautiful to me than that soul of yours. #Quote by R.K. Lilley
Carriera Paintings quotes by Tracy Chevalier
#3. There is a difference between Catholic and Protestant attitudes to painting," he explained as he worked, "but it is not necessarily as great as you may think. Paintings may serve a spiritual purpose for Catholics, but remember too that Protestants see God everywhere, in everything. By painting everyday things-tables and chairs, bowls and pitchers, soldiers and maids-are they not celebrating God's creation as well? #Quote by Tracy Chevalier
Carriera Paintings quotes by Jamie Wyeth
#4. The great thing about a painter is that he or she lives on - I mean, Andrew Wyeth is more in his paintings than he was walking around. #Quote by Jamie Wyeth
Carriera Paintings quotes by Joy McCullough

#6. Each of us is a small part of God's plan. I'm a small part. I create paintings that are being used by God. #Quote by Thomas Kinkade

#7. There's plenty of stuff that I don't feel dissident about: I really like tea, I don't have any problem with that. I like lots of paintings. #Quote by China Mieville
Carriera Paintings quotes by Joseph Plaskett
#8. All paintings start with concept, which is another word for image or imagination. The mistake is to isolate the concept as if the idea did not need to be given permanent form. #Quote by Joseph Plaskett
Carriera Paintings quotes by Jerry Saltz
#9. 'The Night Cafe' and 'The Starry Night' still emit such pathos, density, and intensity that they send shivers down the spine. Whether Van Gogh thought in color or felt with his intellect, the radical color, dynamic distortion, heart, soul, and part-by-part structure in these paintings make him a bridge to a new vision and the vision itself. #Quote by Jerry Saltz
Carriera Paintings quotes by Vincent Gallo
#10. I stopped painting in 1990 at the peak of my success just to deny people my beautiful paintings, and I did it out of spite. #Quote by Vincent Gallo
Carriera Paintings quotes by Peter Watson
#11. ...for example, if Freud is wrong, as i and many others believe, where does that leave any number of novels and virtually the entire corpus of surrealism, Dada, and certain major forms of expressionism and abstraction, not to mention Richard Strauss' 'Freudian' operas such as Salome and Elektra, and the iconic novels of numerous writers such as D.H. Lawrence, Franz Kafka, Thomas Mann and Virginia Woolf? It doesn't render these works less beautiful or pleasurable, necessarily, but it surely dilutes their meaning. They don't owe their entire existence to psychoanalysis. But if they are robbed of a large part of their meaning, can they retain their intellectual importance and validity? Or do they become period pieces? I stress the point because the novels, paintings and operas referred to above have helped to popularise and legitimise a certain view of human nature, one that is, all evidence to the contrary lacking, wrong. #Quote by Peter Watson
Carriera Paintings quotes by Bohumil Hrabal
#12. Our heads met, our eyes crossed paths, the window to the courtyard lay open, I whispered in his ear and he started crying in my hair, wept like a child, I stroked him, touched by his crying, that he opened up, as he truly was, rent his shirt and exposed his heart like the paintings of Jesus hung over the beds in country houses. #Quote by Bohumil Hrabal
Carriera Paintings quotes by Lois Lowry
#13. Some books had shiny pages that showed paintings of landscapes unlike anything Matty had ever seen, or of people costumed in odd ways, or of battles, and there were many quiet painted scenes of a woman holding a newborn child. #Quote by Lois Lowry
Carriera Paintings quotes by Jan Marsh
#14. Women are important in the Pre-Raphaelite movement. But while their faces are seen everywhere- in oil paintings, watercolours, drawings, - their voices are never heard. #Quote by Jan Marsh
Carriera Paintings quotes by Artemis Cooper
#15. One has to imagine the impact of Paddy on an old count from eastern Europe, barely able to live off his much-diminished lands and keep the roof on a house stocked with paintings and furniture that harked back to better days. His children might take a certain pride in their ancient lineage, but they also made it clear that the world had moved on and they planned to move with it. Then a scruffy young Englishman with a rucksack turns up on the doorstep, recommended by a friend. he is polite, cheerful, and cannot hear enough about the family history. He pores over the books and albums in the library, and asks a thousand questions about the princely rulers, dynastic marriages, wars and revolts and waves of migration that shaped this part of the world. He wants to hear about the family portraits too, and begs the Count to remember the songs the peasants used to sing when he was a child. Instead of feeling like a useless fragment of a broken empire, the Count is transformed. This young Englishman has made him realize that he is part of living history, a link in an unbroken chain going back to Charlemagne and beyond. #Quote by Artemis Cooper
Carriera Paintings quotes by Lionel Suggs
#16. Feminists amuse me more than illusionists. They are the only type of people that can make an illogical argument seem even more illogical with paintings of delusions. #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Carriera Paintings quotes by Michele Cassou
#17. Look upon paintings with eyes of mystery rather than judgement. Support the need to enter into the sacred space beyond evaluation. #Quote by Michele Cassou
Carriera Paintings quotes by Charlotte Moss
#18. People's live are expressed in little details ... The soap in the bathroom, the flowers in the garden, the books on the bedside table are all strong symbols of a life in progress. You look at these details and a world unfolds - here are their books, the paintings they cherish, the music that soothes their souls. #Quote by Charlotte Moss
Carriera Paintings quotes by Julian Schnabel
#19. I want the paintings to take me or the viewer out somewhere else. #Quote by Julian Schnabel
Carriera Paintings quotes by Lynn Culbreath Noel
#20. Ancient rock paintings remind us that there are no unclaimed lands, that people have always lived here. They are wayposts along the river journey to the interior of the mind and heart. #Quote by Lynn Culbreath Noel
Carriera Paintings quotes by Gary Hume
#21. Small paintings can be fantastic. But you can't often get a narrative out of a small painting. In any case, museums are huge places, and you want to take up some space. #Quote by Gary Hume
Carriera Paintings quotes by Frank Stella
#22. There's a lot of difference between being well known and being notorious and the black paintings didn't make me well known - they made me notorious. #Quote by Frank Stella
Carriera Paintings quotes by Anne Carson
#23. Fr. 2
All We as Leaves
He (following Homer) compares man's life with the leaves.
All we as leaves in the shock of it:
one dull gold bounce and you're there.
You see the sun? - I built that.
As a lad. The Fates lashing their tails in a corner.
But (let me think) wasn't it a hotel in Chicago where I had the first of those - my body walking out of the room
bent on some deadly errand
and me up on the ceiling just sort of fading out-
brainsex paintings I used to call them?
In the days when I (so to speak) painted.
that oddly wonderful chocolate we got in East
(as it was then) Berlin? #Quote by Anne Carson
Carriera Paintings quotes by David Ogilvy
#24. Some manufacturers illustrate their advertisements with abstract paintings. I would only do this if I wished to conceal from the reader what I was advertising. #Quote by David Ogilvy
Carriera Paintings quotes by Emily Thornton Calvo
#25. The wall between writing and painting is just good grammar.

Moderation in moderation.

Fun is scary with a happy ending.

Just love. If love doesn't transform that which annoys you, it will be easier to tolerate. #Quote by Emily Thornton Calvo
Carriera Paintings quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#26. We all know that men in moderate circumstances can have just as comfortable houses as the richest, just as comfortable clothing, just as good food. They can see just as fine paintings, just as marvelous statues, and they can hear just as good music. They can attend the same theaters and the same operas. They can enjoy the same sunshine, and above all, can love and be loved just as well as kings and millionaires. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Carriera Paintings quotes by Ruth Whitman
#27. In every art beginners must start with models of those who have practiced the same art before them. And it is not only a matter of looking at the drawings, paintings, musical compositions, and poems that have been and are being created; it is a matter of being drawn into the individual work of art, of realizing that it has been made by a real human being, and trying to discover the secret of its creation. #Quote by Ruth Whitman
Carriera Paintings quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#28. Yet I loathe the thought of annihilating myself quite as much now as I ever did. I think with sadness of all the books I've read, all the places I've seen, all the knowledge I've amassed and that will be no more. All the music, all the paintings, all the culture, so many places: and suddenly nothing. ... If it had at least enriched the earth; if it had given birth to… what? A hill? A rocket? But no. Nothing will have taken place. I can still see the hedge of hazel trees flurried by the wind and the promises with which I fed my beating heart while I stood gazing at the gold-mine at my feet: a whole life to live. The promises have all been kept. And yet, turning an incredulous gaze towards that young and credulous girl, I realise with stupor how much I was gypped. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Carriera Paintings quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#29. For a long time I felt bad. I wondered why I didn't want to learn Japanese, why I didn't already speak Japanese, why I would rather go to Paris or Istanbul or Barcelona rather than Tokyo. But then I thought, Who cares? Did anyone ask John F. Kennedy if he spoke Gaelic and visited Dublin or if he ate potatoes every night or if he collected paintings of leprechauns? So why are we supposed to not forget our culture? Isn't my culture right here since I was born here? #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Carriera Paintings quotes by Bernhard Schlink
#30. Goethe's poems are like tiny paintings in beautiful frames. #Quote by Bernhard Schlink
Carriera Paintings quotes by Kirk Douglas
#31. The biggest spur to my interest in art came when I played van Gogh in the biographical film Lust For Life. The role affected me deeply. I was haunted by this talented genius who took his own life, thinking he was a failure. How terrible to paint pictures and feel that no one wants them. How awful it would be to write music that no one wants to hear. Books that no one wants to read. And how would you like to be an actor with no part to play, and no audience to watch you. Poor Vincent - he wrestled with his soul in the wheat field of Auvers-sur-Oise, stacks of his unsold paintings collecting dust in his brother's house. It was all too much for him, and he pulled the trigger and ended it all. My heart ached for van Gogh the afternoon that I played that scene. As I write this, I look up at a poster of his "Irises" - a poster from the Getty Museum. It's a beautiful piece of art with one white iris sticking up among a field of blue ones. They paid a fortune for it, reportedly $53 million. And poor Vincent, in his lifetime, sold only one painting for 400 francs or $80 dollars today. This is what stimulated my interest in buying works of art from living artists. I want them to know while they are alive that I enjoy their paintings hanging on my walls, or their sculptures decorating my garden #Quote by Kirk Douglas
Carriera Paintings quotes by Bob Dylan
#32. I paint mostly from real life. It has to start with that. Real people, real street scenes, behind the curtain scenes, live models, paintings, photographs, staged setups, architecture, grids, graphic design. Whatever it takes to make it work. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Carriera Paintings quotes by Gary Hume
#33. The Doors are perfect paintings; a relief from the picture world I've created for myself. #Quote by Gary Hume
Carriera Paintings quotes by Chuck Close
#34. Any innovation that is evident in my paintings is a direct result of something that happened in the course of making a print. #Quote by Chuck Close
Carriera Paintings quotes by Ad Reinhardt
#35. My paintings are the last paintings one can make. #Quote by Ad Reinhardt
Carriera Paintings quotes by Richard Flanagan
#36. Men's lives are not progressions, as conventionally rendered in history paintings, nor are they a series of facts that may be enumerated & in their proper order understood. Rather they are a series of transformations, some immediate & shocking, some so slow as to be imperceptible, yet so complete & horrifying that at the end of his life a man may search his memory in vain for a moment of correspondence between his self in his dotage & him in his youth. #Quote by Richard Flanagan
Carriera Paintings quotes by Caspar David Friedrich
#37. Why, it has often occurred to me to ask myself, do I so frequently choose death, transience, and the grave as subjects for my paintings? One must submit oneself many times to death in order some day to attain life everlasting. #Quote by Caspar David Friedrich
Carriera Paintings quotes by Andy Warhol
#38. I'll bet there are a lot of artists that nobody hears about who just make more money than anybody. The people that do all the sculptures and paintings for big building construction. We never hear about them, but they make more money than anybody. #Quote by Andy Warhol
Carriera Paintings quotes by Paul Cezanne
#39. The painter must enclose himself within his work; he must respond not with words, but with paintings. #Quote by Paul Cezanne
Carriera Paintings quotes by Rachel Roy
#40. I am inspired by life, past experiences, what's to come, women around me, art, colors, paintings, and emotions. #Quote by Rachel Roy
Carriera Paintings quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#41. The world concerns me only in so far as I have a certain debt and duty to it, because I have lived in it for thirty years and owe to it to leave behind some souvenir in the shape of drawings and paintings – not done to please any particular movement, but within which a genuine human sentiment is expressed. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Carriera Paintings quotes by Werner Herzog
#42. When you look at the paintings at Chauvet Cave, they're not primitive or like children's little scribbles, it bursts on the scene fully accomplished and when you look through the faces of cultural history, art history, it has never gotten any better. #Quote by Werner Herzog
Carriera Paintings quotes by Tom Rachman
#43. What's there to say about making paintings?" He looks hard at his son. "My real life, it's when I'm working. It's entirely there. The rest - everything - is flimflam. And that's tragedy. Because what am I really doing? Wiping colors across fabric? Tricking people into feeling something's there, when it's nothing? When I'm doing the work, I almost think it adds up. Then they drag me to some farce like tonight, and I'm reminded what my job really is: goddamn decoration. #Quote by Tom Rachman
Carriera Paintings quotes by Karsten Harries
#44. Within the category of Kitsch we can thus distinguish between more and less successful paintings. Kitsch, too has its masterpieces. #Quote by Karsten Harries
Carriera Paintings quotes by Chuck Close
#45. No one was more surprised than me when my paintings started selling, except maybe my dealer. #Quote by Chuck Close
