1927 pastel self portrait
" It is one thing to be a PAINTER and another, it is very different to be an ARTIST .Today there are many painters and few artists. It is easy to see the difference. Painters paint in a similar way, They give the impression of copying one another. It is like they have a common personality and their paintings have a lack of interest.
The ARTISTS paint according to their imagination and to the and to the rules acquired from their studies. They do not need to steal from their colleagues, Also they don't need to follow any fashions or schools".
