Painters

Famous quotes containing the word painters:

    “Were not all her life but storm,
    Would not painters paint a form
    Of such noble times ...”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Most of our modern portrait painters are doomed to absolute oblivion. They never paint what they see. They paint what the public sees, and the public never sees anything.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    The cult of individuality and personality, which promotes painters and poets only to promote itself, is really a business. The greater the “genius” of the personage, the greater the profit.
    George Grosz (1893–1959)
