Famous quotes containing the words arts and/or decorative:

    Self-expression is not enough; experiment is not enough; the recording of special moments or cases is not enough. All of the arts have broken faith or lost connection with their origin and function. They have ceased to be concerned with the legitimate and permanent material of art.
    Jane Heap (c. 1880–1964)

    Mildred Pierce: Is that all?

    Ranald MacDougall (1915–1973)
