Art Quote of the Day

” The desire of all artists for independence, for newness, for originality is really the desire for revolution- for its own sake. If he did not desire to change all art,he would never get past his love for the artists who first inspired him and be able to paint his own pictures.  Revolution means existence, not progress, for an artist.”

Elaine de Kooning-

“I am an eclectic painter by chance; I can open almost any book of reproductions and find a painting I could be influenced by.”

Willem de Kooning
