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?
