"Painting is an illusion accomplished by simple means. It's minerals mixed with oil, schmeared on cloth with the hair from the back of a pig's ear." (7)

"I made paintings to the limits of the size of the studios, that's it." (8)

"What you see is what you don't get." (9)

"I still don't know what art is. People think it's decoration. I don't think so. It could be decorative, but it's not decoration." (23)
