These are some wise quotes from famous Artists. Hope you get a chuckle out of them.

George Wesley Bellows: "The ideal artist is who he knows everything, experiences everything, and retains his experience in a spirit of wonder and feeds upon creative lust."

Paul Cezanne: "The only thing that is really difficult is to prove what one believes."

Paul Gauguin: "Art is either a plagiarist or a revolutionist."

Vincent Van Gogh: "Hardly anyone knows that the secret of beautiful work lies to a great extent in truth and sincere sentiment. Smartness as they call it here - the word is so much used ... is that what must save art?"

Robert Henri: "It is harder to see that it is to express. The whole value of art rests in the artist's ability to see well into what is before him."

Claude Monet: "My life has been nothing but a failure."

Pablo Picasso: "I'd like to live like a poor man with lots of money."

Andy Warhol: "It must be hard to be a model, because you'd want to look like the photograph of you, and you can't ever look that way."
