Degas, Edgar

Everyone has talent at 25. The difficulty is to have it at 50.

Nothing in art should seem accidental, not even movement.

A painting requires a little mystery, some vagueness, some fantasy. When you always make your meaning perfectly plain you end up boring people.

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

No art is less spontaneous than mine. What I do is the result of reflection and study of the great masters.

Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
