A Quote by Pablo Ruiz Picasso on appreciation, beauty, love, and mind

I hate that aesthetic game of the eye and the mind, played by these connoisseurs, these mandarins who "appreciate" beauty. What is beauty, anyway? There's no such thing. I never "appreciate," any more than I "like." I love it or I hate.

A Quote by Pablo Ruiz Picasso on art, earth, and emotion

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.
