  • How do I define a work of art.It is not an asset...but a man's timid attempt to repeat the miracle that the simplest peasant girl is capable of..magically producing life out of nothing.
  • I painted a double portrait of Alma Mahler and myself...these litho graphs will always contrast to all the contemporary art of the period.. a myth,a created symbol heavy with the meeting,begetting and parting.
