„El crítico de arte es el peor enemigo del arte».“ sin fuentes

„El artista es la mano que, mediante una tecla determinada, hace vibrar el alma humana».“ sin fuentes


„El color es un poder que influencia directamente al alma. El color es un teclado, los ojos son un martillo, el alma es una cadena. El artista es la mano que juega, tocando una tecla u otra, para causar vibraciones en el alma».“ sin fuentes

„Es hermoso lo que procede de una necesidad interior del alma. Es hermoso lo que es interiormente hermoso.“

„Colour is a power which directly influences the soul.“ Concerning the Spiritual in Art

„The artist must train not only his eye but also his soul.“

„… lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting, and … stop thinking! Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to “walk about” into a hitherto unknown world. If the answer is yes, what more do you want?“

„Color directly influences the soul. Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another purposively, to cause vibrations in the soul.“ Concerning the Spiritual in Art


„That is beautiful which is produced by the inner need, which springs from the soul.“ Concerning the Spiritual in Art

„Everything that is dead quivers. Not only the things of poetry, stars, moon, wood, flowers, but even a white trouser button glittering out of a puddle in the street... Everything has a secret soul, which is silent more often than it speaks.“

„Those [things] that we encounter for the first time immediately have a spiritual effect upon us. A child, for whom every object is new, experiences the world in this way: it sees light, is attracted by it, wants to grasp it, burns its finger in the process, and thus learns fear and respect for the flame.“

„With cold eyes and indifferent mind the spectators regard the work. Connoissers admire the "skill" (as one admires a tightrope walker), enjoy the "quality of painting" (as one enjoys a pasty). But hungry souls go hungry away. The vulgar herd stroll through the rooms and pronounce the pictures "nice" or "splendid." Those who could speak have said nothing, those who could hear have heard nothing.“ Concerning the Spiritual in Art


„The true work of art is born from the 'artist': a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality, an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being.“

„Music is the ultimate teacher.“

„Empty canvas. In appearance - really empty, silent, indifferent. Stunned, almost. In effect - full of tensions, with thousand subdued voices, heavy with expectations. A little frightened because it may be violated“ Kandinsky: Complete Writings On Art

„The eyes are hammers.“
