Edgar Quotes!! • Art is not what you see, but what you make others see. • Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things. • One must do the same subject over again ten times, a hundred times. In art nothing must resemble an accident, not even movement. • In painting you must give the idea of the true by means of the false. • It is all very well to copy what one sees, but it is far better to draw what one now only sees in one’s memory. That is a transformation in which imagination collaborates with memory.
