Art is the human disposition of sensible or intelligible matter for an aesthetic end.

In Art Quotes
There is only one art, whose sole criterion is the power, the authenticity, the revelatory insight, the courage and suggestiveness with which it seeks its truth. Thus, from the standpoint of the work and its worth, it is irrelevant to which political ideas the artist as a citizen claims allegiance, which ideas he would like to serve with his work or whether he holds any such ideas at all.

If we are to change our world view, images have to change. The artist now has a very important job to do. He's not a little peripheral figure entertaining rich people; he's really needed.

In Art Quotes
Fortunately art is a community effort -- a small but select community living in a spiritualized world endeavoring to interpret the wars and the solitudes of the flesh.

Perpetual modernism is the measure of merit in every work of art.

In Art Quotes
Each work of art excludes the world, concentrates attention on itself. For the time it is the only thing worth doing -- to do just that; be it a sonnet, a statue, a landscape, an outline head of Caesar, or an oration. Presently we return to the sight of another that globes itself into a whole as did the first, for example, a beautiful garden; and nothing seems worth doing in life but laying out a garden.

In Art Quotes
Feminist art is not some tiny creek running off the great river of real art. It is not some crack in an otherwise flawless stone. It is, quite spectacularly I think, art which is not based on the subjugation of one half of the species. It is art which will take the great human themes -- love, death, heroism, suffering, history itself -- and render them fully human. It may also, though perhaps our imaginations are so mutilated now that we are incapable even of the ambition, introduce a new theme, one as great and as rich as those others -- should we call it "joy"?

In Art Quotes
For us artists there waits the joyous compromise through art with all that wounded or defeated us in daily life; in this way, not to evade destiny, as the ordinary people try to do, but to fulfill it in its true potential -- the imagination.

A woman is fascinated not by art but by the noise made by those in the field.

In Art Quotes
I hate the noise and hurry inseparable from great estates and titles and look upon both as blessings that ought only to be given to fools, for 'tis only to them that they are blessings.

A fully equipped Duke costs as much to keep up as two Dreadnoughts.

In Aristocracy Quotes
Aristocracy has three successive ages. First superiority, then privileges and finally vanities. Having passed from the first, it degenerates in the second and dies in the third.

In Aristocracy Quotes
There can be no greater argument to a man of his own power than to find himself able not only to accomplish his own desires, but also to assist other men in theirs; and this is that conception wherein consisteth charity.

In Argument Quotes
Architects, painters, and sculptors must recognize anew and learn to grasp the composite character of a building both as an entity and in its separate parts. nly then will their work be imbued with the architectonic spirit which it has lost as "salon art." Together let us desire, conceive, and create the new structure of the future, which will embrace architecture and sculpture and painting in one unity and which will one day rise toward heaven from the hands of a million workers like the crystal symbol of a new faith.

In Architecture Quotes
A building is akin to dogma; it is insolent, like dogma. Whether or not it is permanent, it claims permanence, like dogma. People ask why we have no typical architecture of the modern world, like impressionism in painting. Surely it is obviously because we have not enough dogmas; we cannot bear to see anything in the sky that is solid and enduring, anything in the sky that does not change like the clouds of the sky.

Naturalness is the easiest thing in the world to acquire, if you will forget yourself -- forget about the impression you are trying to make.

In Approval Quotes
To receive applause for works which do not demand all our powers hinders our advance toward a perfecting of our spirit. It usually means that thereafter we stand still.
