What are paintings?

Famous quotes containing the word paintings:

    It is not your paintings I like, it is your painting.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget. In this—as in other ways—they are the opposite of paintings. Paintings record what the painter remembers. Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it.
    John Berger (b. 1926)

    Not “Seeing is Believing” you ninny, but “Believing is Seeing.” For modern art has become completely literary: the paintings and other works exist only to illustrate the text.
    Tom Wolfe (b. 1931)
