"The United States, the land of the free, is particularly rich in museums. That is appropriate, because museums are a means to freedom." Sister Wendy Beckett

"My heart beats more for a raw, average vulgar art, which doesn't live between sleepy fairy-tale moods and poetry but rather concedes a direct entrance to the fearful, commonplace, splendid and the average grotesque banality in life." Max Beckmann

"I have forced myself to contradict myself in order to avoid conforming to my own taste." Marcel Duchamp

" 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

"What I am seeking is not the real and not the unreal but rather the unconscious, the mystery of the instinctive in the human race." Amadeo Modigliani
