PAINTERS
[ Also see Art Artists Painting ]

In the silence of their studios, busied for days at a time with works which leave the mind relatively free, painters become like women; their thoughts can revolve around the minor facts of life and penetrate their hidden meaning.
      - Honore de Balzac

For an impressionist to paint from nature is not to paint the subject, but to realize sensations.
      - Paul Cezanne

Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
      - Edgar Degas

I'm a simple man, and I use simple materials.
      - L.S. Lowry,
        in Mervyn Levy's "Paintings of L.S. Lowry"

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.
      - Pablo R. Picasso,
        in Gerald Howe's "The Painter's Object"
