Picasso quotes

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up"

"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary."

"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."

"I begin with an idea and then it becomes something else."

"I don't say everything, but I paint everything."

"Art is the elimination of the unnecessary."

"When we discovered Cubism, we did not have the aim of discovering Cubism. We only wanted to express what was in us."

"People want to find a "meaning" in everything and everyone. That's the disease of our age, an age that is anything but practical but believes itself to be more practical than any other age."

"Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don’t start measuring her limbs."

"There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun."
