Artists

Famous quotes containing the word artists:

    When ... did the word “temperament” come into fashion with us?... whatever it stands for, it long since became a great social asset for women, and a great social excuse for men. Perhaps it came in when we discovered that artists were human beings.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    ... artists were intended to be an ornament to society. As a society in themselves they are unthinkable.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    For I must tell you that we artists cannot tread the path of Beauty without Eros keeping company with us and appointing himself as our guide.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)
