Black Fine Art

Famous quotes containing the words black, fine and/or art:

    If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it is wrong to be violent defending black women and black children and black babies and black men, then it is wrong for America to draft us, and make us violent abroad in defense of her. And if it is right for America to draft us, and teach us how to be violent in defense of her, then it is right for you and me to do whatever is necessary to defend our own people right here in this country.
    Malcolm X (1925–1965)

    For that fine madness still he did retain
    Which rightly should possess a poet’s brain.
    Michael Drayton (1563–1631)

    The most important quality of art and its aim is illusion; emotion, which is often obtained by certain sacrifices of poetic detail, is something else entirely and of an inferior order.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)
