Picasso on Art, Instinct and the Shadow

Picasso quote 2

“I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be shadow,

—the million moving shapes and cul-de-sacs of shadow.

Art is not the application of a canon of beauty

but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon.

When we love a woman we don’t start measuring her limbs.”

~ Pablo Picasso
