Art Quote of the Day

“Understandably , everyone would rather be an artist than endure the shame of some ordinary occupation.  But the artist’s image is going to be adjusted, sooner or later, when society realizes how easy it is to be an artist, and to set down (on or off the canvas) something that no one can understand and consequently no one can attack; how easy it is to inflate one’s own importance and put on an act that will fool everyone else and even oneself. By then, if not before, the title of artist will induce nausea.”

Gerhard Richter –  The Daily Practice of Painting
