Famous quotes containing the word stripped:

    Matisse makes a drawing, then he makes a copy of it. He recopies it five times, ten times, always clarifying the line. He’s convinced that the last, the most stripped down, is the best, the purest, the definitive one; and in fact, most of the time, it was the first. In drawing, nothing is better than the first attempt.
    Pablo Picasso (1881–1973)

    She stripped it from her arm. I see her yet:
    Her pretty action did outsell her gift,
    And yet enriched it too.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
