Quotations about Art by Author

The Talmud

 We don't see the world as it is.  We see the world as we are.

Mark Tansay

 A painted picture is like a vehicle.  One can either sit in the driveway and take it apart or one can get in it and go somewhere.

Terry Teachout

 A masterpiece doesn't push you around.  It lets you make up your own mind about what it means - and change it as often as you like.  
[Wall Street Journal, Oct 17, 2009]

Don Thompson

 Just remember the key part of the word contemporary is temporary.
 [Quoted in The $12 Million Stuffed Shark: The Curious Economics of 
 Contemporary Art and Auction Houses

Leo Tolstoy

 Art is indispensible for the life and progress toward well-being of individuals and of humanity.  [What is Art? 1896]

Leo Tolstoy

 The artist of the future will understand that to draw a sketch such as will delight dozens of generations or millions of children and adults, is incomparably more important and more fruitful than to paint a picture, of the kind which diverts some members of the weathy classes for a short time and is then forever forgotten.  The region of this art of the simplest feelings accessible to all is enormous, and it is almost as yet untouched.  [What is Art? 1896]

Kojiro Tomita

 It has been said that art is a tryst, for in the joy of it maker and beholder meet.  [Tomita was Curator of Asian Art Boston MFA]

George Tooker

 Painting is an attempt to come to terms with life.  There are as many solutions as there are human beings.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

At last I do not know how to draw.

Mark Twain

 It usually takes me about three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech.



The ultimate justification of the work of art is
to help the spectator to become a work of art himself.


Bernard Berenson
