Art is vice. You don't marry it legitimately, you rape it.
quote
Edgar Degas
quote
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.

Edgar Degas

Everyone has talent at 25. The difficulty is to have it at 50.

Edgar Degas
quote
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

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

Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas
quote
Nothing in art should seem accidental, not even movement.

What a delightful thing is the conversation of specialists! One understands absolutely nothing and it's charming.
quote
Edgar Degas
quote
One must do the same subject over again ten times, a hundred times. In art nothing must resemble an accident, not even movement.
quote
Edgar Degas
quote
In painting you must give the idea of the true by means of the false.
quote
Edgar Degas
quote
A painting requires a little mystery, some vagueness, some fantasy. When you always make your meaning perfectly plain you end up boring people.
