All About Art

‘The moment that an artist takes notice of what other people want, and tries to supply the demand, he ceases to be an artist, and becomes a dull or an amusing craftsman, an honest or dishonest tradesman.’

‘Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has ever known.’

Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900) The Soul of Man under Socialism

‘They have degraded the visible arts into the obvious arts, and the one thing not worth looking at is the obvious.’

Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900) The Critic as Artist
