„.. I saw Gauguin; he told me his theories about art and assured me that the young [artists] would find salvation by replenishing themselves at remote and savage sources. I told him that this art did not belong to him, that he was a civilized man and hence it was his function to show us harmonious things. We parted, each unconvinced. Gauguin is certainly not without talent, but how difficult it is for him to find his own way! He is always poaching on someone's ground; now he is pillaging the savages of Oceania.“

John Rewald, with assistance of Lucien Pissarro – (translated from the unpublished French letters by Lionel Abel); Pantheon Books Inc. New York, second edition, 1943, p. 221

"The Crime and the Punishment" (p. 48) She [ Mary Cassatt ] has infinite talent. I remember the time we started a little magazine called 'Le Jour et La Nuit' together. I was very much interested in processes then, and had made countless experiments [in printing; Degas mainly monotype - Cassatt mainly etchings].. ..You can get extraordinary results with copper; but the trouble is that there are never enough buyers to encourage you to go on with it. "The Crime and the Punishment" (p. 48) Degas's remark, when he visited one day the art-shop of Vollard and looked at a print of Mary Cassatt.

„There is no comparison between him and me; he developed a whole new way of making art and he's clearly in a league of his own. It would be like making comparisons with Warhol.“
