Yves Tanguy Quotes

Quotes by Yves Tanguy - (3 quotes)

Yves Tanguy - From the Artists category:

I believe there is little to gain by exchanging opinions with other artists concerning either the ideology of art or technical methods. Very much alone in my work, I am almost jealous of it. Geography has no bearing on it, nor have the interests of the community in which I work. (Yves Tanguy)

Yves Tanguy - From the Painting category:

The painting develops before my eyes, unfolding its surprises as it progresses. It is this which gives me the sense of complete liberty, and for this reason I am incapable of forming a plan or making a sketch beforehand. (Yves Tanguy)

Yves Tanguy - From the Planning category:

I found that if I planned a picture beforehand, it never surprised me, and surprises are my pleasure in painting. (Yves Tanguy)
