  • "I regard it as a waste of time to think only of selling: one forgets one's art and exaggerates one's value".
  • "One can do such lovely things with so little. Subjects that are too beautiful end by appearing theatrical".
  • "I think when one has talent one finally breaks through; so don't pass up any opportunity to do some work".
  • "The subject should be observed more for shape and color than for drawing... precise drawing is dry and hampers the impression of the whole, it destroys all sensations".
Camille Pissarro

  • "E' solo disegnando spesso, disegnando tutto, disegnando incessantemente, che un bel giorno scopri per tua grande sorpresa che hai realizzato qualcosa nel suo vero carattere".
  • "E' un grande errore credere che tutti i mediatori d'arte non sono strettamente legati alla loro epoca".
Camille Pissarro
