    Gauguin says that when sailors have to move a heavy load or raise an anchor, they all sing together to keep them up and give them vim. That's just what artists lack! (Vincent van Gogh)

    Painting is a faith, and it imposes the duty to disregard public opinion. (Vincent van Gogh)

    You can't do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh. (John Singer Sargent)

    Every time I paint a portrait, I lose a friend. (John Singer Sargent)

    A portrait is a picture in which there is just a tiny little something not quite right about the mouth. (John Singer Sargent)

    -on painting a watercolour
    Make the best of an emergency. (John Singer Sargent)

    There is no defense against criticism except obscurity. (Joseph Addison)

    -in an art gallery as a young man
    I am going to paint - Something like that, only a damned sight better. If a man wants to be an artist, he should never look at pictures. (Winslow Homer)

    -letter to his dealer on the painting Gulf Stream
    The criticisms... by old women and others are noted. You may inform these people that the Negro did not starve to death. He was not eaten by the sharks. The waterspout did not hit him. And he was rescued by a passing ship. (Winslow Homer)

    I thought for a change I would give up drinking, and it was a great mistake, and, although I reduced the size of my nose and improved my beauty, my stomach suffered. (Winslow Homer)

    I work hard every afternoon from 4:30 to 4:40, that being the limit of the light I represent, the title of my picture being 'Early Evening'. (Winslow Homer)

    -in a fallow period
    I will paint for money any time. (Winslow Homer)

    What they call talent is nothing but the capacity for doing continuous work in the right way. (Winslow Homer)

    I am very depressed and deeply disgusted with painting. It is really a continual torture. (Claude Monet)

    it just keeps on giving. They have nice categories too, like depression, drunkenness and pleine air.
