N. C. Wyeth Quotes

Quotes by N. C. Wyeth - (7 quotes)

N. C. Wyeth - From the Critics category:

By the late twenties and early thirties my easel pictures were being shown and somewhat admired. Critics used the word 'illustrator' as a denigrating label. I resented the implied barrier between illustration and painting but I was too busy to enter into controversy. Both illustrator and painter are artists who are in pictorial communication. Both should be measured by their competence -- not by artificial compartments contrived by critics. (N. C. Wyeth)

N. C. Wyeth - From the Enthusiasm category:

- at age 29, in a letter to his mother, July 26, 1911...
Treasure Island is completed! The entire set of seventeen canvases without one break in my enthusiasm and spirit. Better in every quality than anything I ever did. (N. C. Wyeth)

If you paint a man leaning over, your own back must ache. (N. C. Wyeth)

N. C. Wyeth - From the Mediocrity category:

The sheep-like tendency of human society soon makes inroads on a child's unsophistications, and then popular education completes the dastardly work with its systematic formulas, and away goes the individual, hurtling through space into that hateful oblivion of mediocrity. We are pruned into stumps, one resembling another, without character or grace. (N. C. Wyeth)
