We don’t have many artist-quotes of Rembrandt himself: c 12 quotes - which you find here in the PDF (transl. Anne Porcelijn). Happily we do have a lot of quotes about Rembrandt as painter and teacher in art by his contemporaries - his former pupils, colleague-painters, citizens of Amsterdam, family, etc. You will find them here in his PDF too! Unlike most Dutch masters of the 17th century, Rembrandt’s works depict a wide range of style and subject matter. From portraits and self-portraits to landscapes, genre scenes, allegorical and historical scenes, biblical and mythological themes - in his paintings, drawings and etchings. The characteristic light and dark of Rembrandt became most important in his late art. . Some selected artist-quotes of Rembrandt - as short introduction of his extended quotes in the PDF: ’My (dear) Sir: Let me first offer my kind regards… …(the picture) will show to (the) best advantage in His Excellency’s gallery, since there it will be (showed) in bright light.’ - quote of Rembrandt, in his letter to Constantijn Huygens, Febr. 1636 ’in these two paintings (his ‘Entombment of Christ’ and the arising Christ) the greatest and most natural movement has been expressed (and rendered), which is also the main reason why they have taken so long to execute.’. - Rembrandt’s quote, in his letter to Constantijn Huygens, Febr. 1636 ’Try to put well in practice what you already know; and in so doing, you will in good time, discover the hidden things which you now inquire about. Practice what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know’ - quote of Rembrandt, recorded by his former pupil Van Hoogstraten in 1671 . links for selected art-resources on Rembrandt: biographical notes on the life of Rembrandt, Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rembrandt artist-quotes of ànd about Rembrandt, on Wikiquote: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Rembrandt images of the painting art of Rembrandt, website Rijksmuseum: https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/nl/rijksstudio/kunstenaars/rembrandt-van-rijn . editor: Fons Heijnsbroek / Matrozenhof (FotoDutch on Wikiquote):<br>[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User:FotoDutch]

Bram van Velde quotes: on his abstract painting & artistic life in France - for students and pupils

Bram van Velde quotes: on his abstract painting & artistic life in France - for students and pupils

Bram van Velde quotes, on his abstract painting art and artistic life, mainly in France - free art-resource for students, pupils and art teachers . Bram Van Velde’s quotes tell about ‘Truth’ in modern painting art, and the necessary ‘uncertainty’ an artist has to accept as condition to create art. That’s why he criticizes Picasso as an ‘artist who knows too much’. Van Velde waits and waits and doubts… Bram van Velde was a Dutch-born painter, living and working mainly in France. He became famous for his independent, abstract and colored art-style. A huge inspiration for him were Matisse’s early still-life paintings in the 1930’s. Later he painted completely abstract. Van Velde’s painting style resides between Abstract expressionism, École de Paris and Surrealism. His art is expressive and intuitively created! . Some selected quotes of Bram van Velde - as a short introduction of his extended quotes in the PDF: ’Life and mind are continuously in conflict with each other. I want happiness, security. I won’t reach that by considerations of my mind. Not what he thinks engages the artist, but what he feels…’ - Bram van Velde’s quote, in a letter of van Velde, 1930; City Archive The Hague ’The sensitive man or the artist can only be a sick man in our civilized life, so full of lies… …painting is man in the face of his downfall.’. - Van Velde’s quote; as cited in ‘Abstract Painting’, Michel Seuphor, Dell Publishing Co., 1964, p. 134 ’Painting is an aid to vision. It turns life, the complexity of life, into something visible. It reveals things that we don’t know how to see’ - quote by Bram van Velde, 1967, from: ‘Conversations with Samuel Beckett and Bram van Velde’, ed. Charles Juliet, Archive edition, 2009, p. 62 . links for selected art-resources on Bram van Velde: biographical notes on Bram Van Velde, Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bram_van_Velde artist-quotes of ànd about Van Velde, Wikiquote: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Bram_van_Velde images of the painting art of Bram Van Velde, Wikiart: https://www.wikiart.org/en/Search/Bram van Velde . editor: Fons Heijnsbroek / Matrozenhof (FotoDutch on Wikiquote):<br>[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User:FotoDutch]

Vincent van Gogh quotes: from his letters on painting art and artist-life - for students and pupils

Vincent van Gogh quotes from his letters, on painting art & artist-life - free art-resource for students, pupils and art teachers Van Gogh’s quotes are taken from his letters to brother Theo and other artists. Vincent informed Theo almost weekly about his daily life, his painting and about other painter-artists, he admired. He writes about his painting ‘Potato Eaters’, his religious feelings which changed radically and his goals in art. All panting and drawing of Vincent just happened in 10 years! Unbelievable! Vincent van Gogh was very consciousness in his method of painting - he planned a lot beforehand, like his choice of colors - in contrary to the ‘disturbed Vincent’, so often pictured in books and films. . Some selected artist-quotes of Vincent van Gogh - as a short introduction of his extended quotes in the PDF: ’When I am writing [for his study theology] I instinctively make a little drawing now and then like the one I sent you lately, and for instance, this morning, ‘Elijah in the Desert.’ - quote of Vincent van Gogh, 1877: in his letter to brother Theo, from Amsterdam June, 1877 ’Here [Arles], under a stronger sun, I have found true what Pissarro said, and what Gauguin wrote to me as well, the simplicity, the lack of color, the gravity of great sunlight effects.’ - quote of Van Gogh, in his letter to brother Theo, from Arles, Oct. 1888 ’At present I have a portrait of a woman [Madame Roulin]… .Which I’ve called ‘La Berceuse’, . .It’s a woman dressed in green (bust olive green and the skirt pale Veronese green). Her hair is entirely orange and in plaits. The complexion worked up in chrome yellow, with a few broken tones, of course, in order to model… .Whether I’ve actually sung a lullaby with colour I leave to the critics.’ - quote from Vincent’s letter, from Arles, Jan. 1889 - to his Dutch friend Arnold Koning . links for selected art-resources on Vincent van Gogh: extended biographical notes of Vincent van Gogh, on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_van_Gogh artist-quotes of ànd about Van Gogh, on Wikiquote: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Vincent_van_Gogh images of Vincent’s painting art, on Wikiart: https://www.wikiart.org/en/vincent-van-gogh . editor: Fons Heijnsbroek / Matrozenhof (FotoDutch on Wikiquote):<br>[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User:FotoDutch]

Theo van Doesburg  quotes: on his painting art, 'De Stijl' and artist-life - for students and pupils

Theo van Doesburg quotes: on his painting art, 'De Stijl' and artist-life - for students and pupils

Theo van Doesburg quotes, on his painting art, ‘De Stijl’-group and his artist-life - free art-resource for students, pupils and art teachers . Theo van Doesburg’s quotes inform us about art-movements De Stijl and Dada. It was Mondrian who had a strong influence on Van Doesburg, from 1915. In c. 1926 they parted in art-orientation, because Doesburg’s art-concept became much more dynamic and architectural. Van Doesburg founded with Mondrian the Dutch artist-group and magazine ‘De Stijl’ / The Style’ in 1917. In 1923 already Dada attracted him strongly and he cooperated with German Dada artist Kurt Schwitters. Van Doesburg wrote many Manifesto’s on art. ‘Elementarism’ was the name of his own art-style he proclaimed c. 1926. . Some artist-quotes of Theo van Doesburg - as a short introduction of his extended quotes in the PDF: ’Piet Mondrian realizes the importance of line. The line has almost become a work of art in itself… .Each superfluous line, each wrongly placed line, any color placed without veneration or care, can spoil everything – that is, the spiritual.’ - quote of Van Doesburg, in: ‘Eenheid’ (Dutch art-magazine) no. 283, Nov. 1915 ’Dada is able to mobilize the optical and dimensional static viewpoint… …Dada is ‘yes-no’, a bird on four legs, a ladder without steps, a square without angels. Dada possesses as many positives as negatives…’ - Van Doesburg’s quote, in his article article ‘What is Dada???’, in art-magazine De Stijl, 1923 ’Elementarism rejects the demands of pure statics which led to sterility and to the laming of creative potentialities. Instead of denying Time and Space, Elementarism acknowledge these elements to be the most elementary means for creating a new plastic expression [critic on Mondrian]’ - quote of Doesburg, in: ‘Painting and plastic art’: Elementarism - fragment of a manifesto’, Paris Dec. 1926 . links for selected art-resources on Theo van Doesburg: extended biographical notes of Van Doesburg, on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theo_van_Doesburg artist-quotes of ànd about Van Doesburg, on Wikiquote: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Theo_van_Doesburg images of his painting art, on Wikiart: https://www.wikiart.org/en/theo-van-doesburg . editor: Fons Heijnsbroek / Matrozenhof (FotoDutch on Wikiquote):<br>[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User:FotoDutch]

Karel Appel quotes: on painting art & life in The Netherlands, France + US - for students and pupils

Karel Appel quotes: on painting art & life in The Netherlands, France + US - for students and pupils

Karel Appel quotes: on his painting art and artistic life in The Netherlands, France + US - free art-resource for students, pupils and art teachers* Karel Appel’s artist-quotes reveal an intensive and intimate relation with the process of creation of art, as painter and as sculptor. During his long artistic life Appel continued to create spontaneous, colorful, expressive art - in paintings, sculptures, lithography and in many graphic prints. Appel was a Dutch-born artist who lived later in Paris and the U.S. He initiated with other young artists in the Netherlands the famous modern artist group / art movement COBRA. . Some selected artist-quotes of Karel Appel - as a short introduction of his extended quotes in the PDF: ’I paint like a barbarian in this barbarous time.’ - quote of Karel Appel, 1962; from the documentary ‘De werkelijkheid van Karel Appel’, by Dutch filmer Jan Vrijman ’Of course, I painted before Cobra (in 1950’s), as afterwards. Each one of us [CoBrA-artists] had his own personality. Cobra is only a very short period of my life. It was like a crossroads. We crossed paths and each continued on his way… .We [artists] are not born to form groups. A group that lasted for too long would destroy the creative activity of its members. - quote of Appel in an interview with Michel Ragon, 1963 ’I have painted like an ape. The ape phase is in all my work. My first lick of paint is the ape phase, from that I grow towards a more intellectual phase, involving the lines, the rhythm. From that phase I grow towards mankind, for that is where the power of my imagination lies. It no longer has anything to do with reality, even though the world is present in it - for we recognize people, animals, plants, you name it.’ - quote of Karel Appel: from the conversation with Rudy Fuchs in 1990! . links for selected art-resources on Karel Appel: extended biographical notes of Karel Appel, on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karel_Appel artist-quotes of ànd about Appel, on Wikiquote: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Karel_Appel images of the painting art of Karel Appel, on Wikiart: https://www.wikiart.org/en/karel-appel . editor: Fons Heijnsbroek / Matrozenhof (FotoDutch on Wikiquote):<br>[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User:FotoDutch]
