Famous quotes containing the word art:

    There is no art without Eros.
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)

But in artists of less force, the thing becomes a pressure, and produces a definite pain, which is called the artistic temperament.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    In the final analysis, “style” is art. And art is nothing more or less than various modes of stylized, dehumanized representation.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
