[ Also see Architecture Art Occupations Pottery ]

I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don't need.
      - Auguste Rodin

The scupltor does not work for the anatomist, but for the common observer of life and nature.
      - Bayard Ruskin,
        True and Beautiful--Sculpture

Sculpture is not the mere cutting of the form of anything in stone; it is the cutting of the effect of it. Very often the true form, in the marble, would not be in the least like itself.
      - John Ruskin

The sculptor does not work for the anatomist, but for the common observer of life and nature.
      - John Ruskin

The sculptor must paint with his chisel; half his touches are not to realize, but to put power into, the form. They are touches of light and shadow, and raise a ridge, or sink a hollow, not to represent an actual ridge or hollow, but to get a line of light, or a spot of darkness.
      - John Ruskin

The beauty of a plastic work is, above all, plastic; and an art always degenerates when, discarding its own peculiar means for exciting interest, it borrows those of another art.
      - Henri Taine (Hyppolyte Adolpe Taine)

So stands the statue that enchants the world,
  So bending tries to veil the matchless boast,
    The mingled beauties of exulting Greece.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Summer
         (l. 1,346)

He, like Amphion, makes those quarries leap into fair figures from a confused heap.
      - Edmund Waller

The marble index of a mind forever
  Voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone.
      - William Wordsworth, The Prelude (bk. III)
