Famous quotes containing the words harold rosenberg and/or rosenberg:

    The story of Americans is the story of arrested metamorphoses. Those who achieve success come to a halt and accept themselves as they are. Those who fail become resigned and accept themselves as they are.
    Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)

    Today, each artist must undertake to invent himself, a lifelong act of creation that constitutes the essential content of the artist’s work. The meaning of art in our time flows from this function of self-creation. Art is the laboratory for making new men.
    —Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)
