Oskar Kokoschka

Austrian painter and playwright, representative of expressionism
I consider myself responsible to the coming generations, which are left stranded in a blitzed world, unaware of the soul trembling in awe before the mystery of life.More Oskar Kokoschka quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All that's left now is purely poetic work, putting more life into individual places, as I've made so sure of the fundamental mood and dimension of expression that it won't leave me groping around in uncertainty any more.More Oskar Kokoschka quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I try to keep my sitters moving and talking, to make them forget they are being painted. This has nothing to do with extracting intimate secrets or confessions, but rather with establishing, in motion, an essential image of the kind that remains in memory or recurs in dreams.More Oskar Kokoschka quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How do I define a work of art? It is not an asset in the stock-exchange sense, but a man's timid attempt to repeat the miracle that the simplest peasant girl is capable of at any time, that of magically producing life out of nothing.More Oskar Kokoschka quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All that's left now is purely poetic work, putting more life into individual places, as I've made so sure of the fundamental mood and dimension of expression that it won't leave me groping around in uncertainty any more.More Oskar Kokoschka quotes [08/05/2011 02:08:56]
