Famous quotes containing the word museums:

    In museums and palaces we are alternate radicals and conservatives.
    Henry James (1843–1816)

    Museums are just a lot of lies, and the people who make art their business are mostly imposters.... We have infected the pictures in museums with all our stupidities, all our mistakes, all our poverty of spirit. We have turned them into petty and ridiculous things.
    Pablo Picasso (1881–1973)
