Quotations about Art by Author

Henry James

There is a limit to what it is worthwhile to attempt to say about the greatest artists.  [Les Maitres d'autrefois]

Henry James

It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes impotance. . . and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process.

Steve Jobs

Fashion is what seems beautiful now but looks ugly later; art can be ugly at first but becomes beautiful later. [Quoted by his sister Mona Simpson in her eulogy, New York Times Oct 30, 2011]

Steve Jobs

Creativity is just connecting things.

Lyndon Johnson

Art is a nation's most precious heritage. For it is in our works of art that we reveal to ourselves and to others the inner vision which guides us as a nation. [September 29, 1965, while signing the National Foundation on the Arts and Humanities Act]

Philip Johnson

Whoever commissions buildings buys me. I am for sale. I am a whore. I am an artist.

Jonathan Jones
(art critic, journalist)

No serious art is easy to interpret.  Nor is there ever a single valid interpretation of art.  If art is good, there are many things to be said about it and much that will remain unsayable.



Art teaches nothing, except the significance of life.


Henry Miller
