QuotesEdit

  • I strive to make my art bear the same relation to painting that polyphony bears to music. Illustrative music is a thing of the past: it has become abstract and purely aesthetic, dependent for its effect upon rhythm and form.
    • Quoted in Bryant American Pictures And Their Painters (1917), p. 302
