George Braque “Quotes”

Once an object has been incorporated in a picture it accepts a new destiny.

Painting is a nail to which I fasten my ideas.

Reality only reveals itself when it is illuminated by a ray of poetry.

Painting is a nail to which I fasten my ideas.

There is only one valuable thing in art: the thing you cannot explain.

To define a thing is to substitute the definition for the thing itself.

Truth exists; only lies are invented.

George Braque Biography
Georges Braque (13 May 1882 – 31 August 1963) was a major 20th century French painter and sculptor who, along with Pablo Picasso, developed the art movement known as cubism.

Action is the foundational key to all success.

An idea is a point of departure and no more. As soon as you elaborate it, it becomes transformed by thought.

Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?

Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.

Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.

Everything is a miracle.

Everything you can imagine is real.

I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.

I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else.

To draw you must close your eyes and sing.

I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.

Give me a museum and I’ll fill it.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.
