Canvas Photo Printing For Art Reproductions

Famous quotes containing the words art, canvas, photo and/or printing:

    Einstein is not ... merely an artist in his moments of leisure and play, as a great statesman may play golf or a great soldier grow orchids. He retains the same attitude in the whole of his work. He traces science to its roots in emotion, which is exactly where art is also rooted.
    Havelock Ellis (1859–1939)

    If the man who paints only the tree, or flower, or other surface he sees before him were an artist, the king of artists would be the photographer. It is for the artist to do something beyond this: in portrait painting to put on canvas something more than the face the model wears for that one day; to paint the man, in short, as well as his features.
    James Mcneill Whistler (1834–1903)

    A photo of someone else’s childhood,
    a garden in another country—world
    he had no part in and has no power to imagine:
    yet the old man who has failed his memory
    keens over the picture— ‘Them happy days—
    gone—gone for ever!’
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    The printing press was at first mistaken for an engine of immortality by everybody except Shakespeare.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)
