PABLO R. PICASSO
Spanish painter
(1881 - 1973)

Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.
      - [Computers]

Give me a museum and I'll fill it.
      - [Artists]

I paint a window just as I look out of a window. If a window looks wrong in a picture open, I draw the curtain and shut it, just as I would in my own room. One must act in painting as in life, directly.
      - [Painting]

I'd like to live as a poor man with lots of money.
      - [Poverty]

To me there is no past or future in art. If a work of art cannot live always in the present it must not be considered at all. The art of the Greeks, of the Egyptians, of the great painters who lived in other times, is not an art of the past, perhaps it is more alive today than it ever was.
      - [Art]

We might adapt for the artist the joke about there being nothing more dangerous than instruments of war in the hands of generals. In the same way, there is nothing more dangerous than justice in the hands of judges, and a paint brush in the hands of a painter! Just think of the danger to society! But today we haven't the heart to expel the painters and poets because we no longer admit to ourselves that there is any danger in keeping them in our midst.
      - in Gerald Howe's "The Painter's Object"
        [Art : Painters]
