Famous quotes containing the words painters, color and/or field:

    The cult of individuality and personality, which promotes painters and poets only to promote itself, is really a business. The greater the “genius” of the personage, the greater the profit.
    George Grosz (1893–1959)

    Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one’s soul; when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are born free, when understanding breeds love and brotherhood.
    Josephine Baker (1906–1975)

    Something told the wild geese
    It was time to go.
    Though the fields lay golden
    Something whispered—”Snow.”
    —Rachel Lyman Field (1894–1942)
