Famous quotes containing the word sculptor:

    The god or hero of the sculptor is always represented in a transition from that which is representable to the senses, to that which is not.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    No person who is not a great sculptor or painter can be an architect. If he is not a sculptor or painter, he can only be a builder.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)

    The peculiarity of sculpture is that it creates a three-dimensional object in space. Painting may strive to give on a two-dimensional plane, the illusion of space, but it is space itself as a perceived quantity that becomes the peculiar concern of the sculptor. We may say that for the painter space is a luxury; for the sculptor it is a necessity.
    Sir Herbert Read (1893–1968)
