It is all very well to copy what one sees but it is far better to draw what one now only sees in one’s memory. That is a transformation in which imagination collaborates with memory.

Art is vice. You don’t marry it legitimately you rape it.

Painting is easy when you don’t know how but very difficult when you do.
