In Spanish: "Una idea es un punto de partida, y nada más, para hacer algo. No lo es todo. Si te pones a trabajarla con el pensamiento se vuelve otra cosa." - Picasso: pintura y realidad: Textos, entrevistas y declaraciones (Libros del Astillero, 1973), p. 81, "1938"
“Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don't start measuring her limbs.”
