Pablo Picasso Quote

The idea of research has often made painting go astray, and made the artist lose himself in mental lucubrations. Perhaps this has been the principal fault of modern art. The spirit of research has poisoned those who have not fully understood all the positive and conclusive elements in modern art and has made them attempt to paint the invisible and, therefore, the unpaintable.


As quoted by Marius de Zayas, in 'The Arts', New York, May 1923 - "Picasso Speaks," 1923
