„I do not believe that art must develop on national lines, but I am convinced that there never was and never will be an international art. There is and was French, German, Italian, and Flemish art. But I deny those specific definitions so fashionable with adepts of fascism which make of every country an hermetic cell from which all foreign artists are excluded. [shortly after the end of the German occupation]“

„I don't do art to address other people but to address myself. I've never done art with a thought of being a professional artist who makes a living by selling his art.“

—  Robert Fulghum American writer 1937
Context: I don't do art to address other people but to address myself. I've never done art with a thought of being a professional artist who makes a living by selling his art. I've never had a commercial show in a gallery. I suppose I'm like those who write poetry or songs without seeking publication. I make art in and for the experience itself — to satisfy a need to express myself in a creative, colorful, non-verbal way.

„I don't believe in Jewish art. There are Jewish artists, which means, artists who are born Jewish, but that does not mean that their work is Jewish art. (translation from Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek)“

—  Jozef Israëls Dutch painter 1824 - 1911
version in Dutch (citaat van Israëls, in het Nederlands): Ik geloof niet in joodse kunst. Er zijn joodse kunstenaars, d.w.z. kunstenaars die joods geboren zijn, maar dat wil nog niet zeggen dat hun werk joodse kunst is. Quote of Jozef Israëls, 9 July 1907, translated from his letter (written in German) to the committee of the Exhibition for Jewish Art in Berlin; as cited in Jozef Israëls, 1824 – 1911, ed. Dieuwertje Dekkers; Waanders, Zwolle 1999, p. 55 Jozef Israëls was Jewish himself, but refused to call his art Jewish as the Zionist movement liked to call it

„Every day I am thinking about the Art school [which Walden wants to start in Germany, since 1915-16]… If our pursuit is really to make great progress in future, the Art school must produce individualities who can with our assist really continue from their inside and start creating on their own, without always studying the pictures of other artists. (translation from German, Fons Heijnsbroek, 2018)“

—  Jacoba van Heemskerck Dutch painter 1876 - 1923
(original version, written by Jacoba in German:) Ich denke immer viel über die Kunstschule nach [ die Walden seit 1915/16 anfangen möchte].. .Wenn unser Streben wirklich in der Zukunft grosse Fortschritte machen soll, muss die Kunstschule Individualitäten hervorbringen, die durch uns wirklich vo inneren heraus weiter können und anfangen zu schaffen, ohne immer Bilder von anderen zu sehen. Quote in a letter of Jacoba van Heemskerck to Herwarth Walden in Berlin, 15 August 1917; as cited in Jacoba van Heemskerck, kunstenares van het Expressionisme, Haags Gemeentemuseum The Hague, 1982, pp. 15-16
