An artist, under pain of oblivion, must have confidence in himself, and listen only to his real master: Nature.
|in Nature Quotes by Auguste Renoir|
The love of their country is with them only a mode of flattering its master; as soon as they think that master can no longer hear, they speak of everything with a frankness which is the more startling because those who listen to it become responsible. - Marquis De Custine
Creation is dominated by three absolutely different factors: First, nature, which works upon us by its laws; second, the artist, who creates a spiritual contact with nature and his materials; third, the medium of expression through which the artist translates his inner world. - Hans Hofmann
