Quote of the Week-Pablo Picasso on art

We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies. ~Pablo Picasso

Hey man, Austin here! Sweet blog. I love good quotes, my favorite is from JRR Tolkien: "I warn you, if you bore me, I shall take my revenge."

Good statement. I completely agree with the first paragraph ("We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth").

Every time I think of 'fine art' three names come to my head: Velazquez, Monet and of course Picasso.

Great blog Chris!!
