Art Quotes by Picasso
Quote 1: Art is a lie that makes us realize truth.
Quote 2: Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.
Quote 3: Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Quote 4: Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don't start measuring her limbs.
Quote 5: Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.
Quote 6: Everything you can imagine is real.
Quote 7: I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else.
Quote 8: When you start with a portrait and search for a pure form, a clear volume, through successive eliminations, you arrive inevitably at the egg. Likewise, starting with the egg and following the same process in reverse, one finishes with the portrait.
Quote 9: There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.
Quote 10: To draw you must close your eyes and sing.
Quote 11: The world today doesn't make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?
