Edgar Degas

French painter, graphic artist and sculptor
Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good thingsMore Edgar Degas quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Art' is the same word as 'artifice,' that is to say, something deceitful. It must succeed in giving the impression of nature by false means.More Edgar Degas quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The artist does not draw what he sees, but what he must make others see. Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things. A picture is first of all a product of the imagination of the artist; it must never be a copy. If then two or three natural accents can be added, obviously no harm is done. The air we see in the paintings of the old masters is never the air we breathe.More Edgar Degas quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

A painting is above all a product of the artist's imagination, it must never be a copy. If, at a later stage, he wants to add two or three touches from nature, of course it doesn't spoil anything.More Edgar Degas quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
