Creative Quotations from . . .
Marc Chagall
(1887-1985) born on
Jul 07
Russian-French painter, graphic artist. He was well known for his colorful "cubic" fantasy narrative paintings depicting Russian village life.
         
   
F
The fingers must be educated, the thumb is born knowing.

R
If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.
A
I work in whatever medium likes me at the moment.
N
When I'm finishing a picture I hold some God-made object up to it -- a rock, a flower, or a tree branch -- as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there's a clash, it's bad art.
K
Art is the unceasing effort to compete with the beauty of flowers - and never succeeding.
