Quoteable Sunday – Art

7 Comments


Virginie Says…

Today, my Quoteable Sunday theme is Art.  quotablesunday

“Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.”  Andre Gide

“Art is on the side of the oppressed. Think before you shudder at the simplistic dictum and its heretical definition of the freedom of art. For if art is freedom ofthe spirit, how can it exist within the oppressors?”  Edith Wharton

“Life isn’t long enough for love and art.”  W. Somerset Maugham

Quoteable Sunday is hosted by A Daily Dose of Toni.

  3. As an art lover and Edith Wharton fan, this quote is perfect: “Art is on the side of the oppressed. Think before you shudder at the simplistic dictum and its heretical definition of the freedom of art. For if art is freedom ofthe spirit, how can it exist within the oppressors?” Edith Wharton
