Citações Georges Rouault


„Painting for me is merely a means of forgetting life. It is a cry in the night. A sob broken off. A strangled laugh.“

—  Georges Rouault
quoted by Henri Perruchot, in T-Lautrec, transl. Humphrey Hare; The World Publishing Company, Cleveland, Ohio, 1960/61, p. 51

„I am a believer and a conformist. Anyone can revolt; it is more difficult silently to obey our own interior promptings, and to spend our lives finding sincere and fitting means of expression for our temperaments and our gifts — if we have any. I do not say "neither God, nor Master," only in the end to substitute myself for the God I have excommunicated..."“

—  Georges Rouault
Rouault, Georges. "Climat pictural." La Renaissance. XX, no. 10-12. (1937) Variant translation: Anybody can rebel. But to obey in silence, an inner calling to search lifelong without impatience for the means of expression adequate to us... that is much more difficult.
