Some quotes by Robert Hughes

  • The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.Fr
  • On the whole, money does artists much more good than harm. The idea that one benefits from cold water, crusts and debt collectors is now almost extinct, like belief in the reformatory power of flogging.

  • Drawing never dies, it holds on by the skin of its teeth, because the hunger it satisfies.. the desire for an active, investigative, manually vivid relation with the things we see and yearn to know about.. is apparently immortal.

  • Drawing brings us into a different, a deeper and more fully experienced relation to the object.
