  • "It is certain that at certain times talent entirely overcomes thought or poetry".
  • "È certo che in certi momenti il ​​talento supera del tutto il pensiero o la poesia".
  • "I don't dig beneath the surface for things that don't appear before my own eyes".
  • "Non scavo sotto la superficie per cose che non compaiono davanti ai miei occhi".

  • "If you begin with the middle-tone and work up from it toward the darks so that you deal last with your highest lights and darkest darks, you avoid false accents".
  • "Se inizi con il tono medio e ti muovi da esso verso le tenebre in modo da affrontare le ultime luci più alte e le tenebre più scure, eviti i falsi accenti".
  • "Cultivate an ever continuous power of observation. Wherever you are, be always ready to make slight notes of postures, groups and incidents. Store up in the mind... a continuous stream of observations from which to make selections later. Above all things get abroad, see the sunlight and everything that is to be seen".
  • "I hate to paint portraits! I hope never to paint another portrait in my life. Portraiture may be all right for a man in his youth, but after forty I believe that manual dexterity deserts one, and, besides, the color-sense is less acute. Youth can better stand the exactions of a personal kind that are inseparable from portraiture. I have had enough of it".
  • "If you begin with the middle-tone and work up from it toward the darks so that you deal last with your highest lights and darkest darks, you avoid false accents".
  • "Se inizi con il tono medio e ti muovi da esso verso le tenebre in modo da affrontare le ultime luci più alte e le tenebre più scure, eviti i falsi accenti".
