The people who make art their business are mostly imposters.
I have a horror of people who speak about the beautiful. What is the beautiful? One must speak of problems in painting!
One does a whole painting for one peach and people think just the opposite - that particular peach is but a detail.
When I die, it will be a shipwreck, and as when a huge ship sinks, many people all around will be sucked down with it.
I would like to manage to prevent people from ever seeing how a picture of mine has been done. What can it possibly matter? What I want is that the only thing emanating from my pictures should be emotion.
People who try to explain pictures are usually barking up the wrong tree.
