Quotes of Jacob Lawrence

Афроамериканский художник

  • ⋅When the subject is strong, simplicity is the only way to treat it. /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅"Humanism" is to be human, to think, to analyze, and to probe. To respond and to be stimulated by all living things - beasts, fowl, and fishes. To respond through touch, sight, smell, and sound to all things in nature - both organic and inorganic-to colors, shapes, and textures - to not only look at a blade of grass but to really see a blade of grass. These things, to me, are what life and living are all about. I would call it "Humanism." /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅All artists are constantly looking for something and they don't always know what. /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅I've always been interested in history, but they never taught Negro history in the public schools...I don't see how a history of the United States can be written honestly without including the Negro. I didn't [paint] just as a historical thing, but because I believe these things tie up with the Negro today. We don't have a physical slavery, but an economic slavery. If these people, who were so much worse off than the people today, could conquer their slavery, we can certainly do the same thing....I am not a politician. /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅I would describe my work as expressionist. The expressionist point of view is stressing your own feelings about something. /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅If at times my productions do not express the conventionally beautiful, there is always an effort to express the universal beauty of man's continuous struggle to lift his social position and to add dimension to his spiritual being. /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅My belief is that it is most important for an artist to develop an approach and philosophy about life - if he has developed this philosophy, he does not put paint on canvas, he puts himself on canvas. /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅I have an assuredness of myself. I never protect myself against it. /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅The Human subject is the most important thing. My work is abstract in the sense of having been designed and composed, but it is not abstract in the sense of having no human content I want to communicate. I want the idea to strike right away. /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅You bring to a painting your own experience. /Jacob Lawrence
  • ⋅This is my genre...the happiness, tragedies, and the sorrows of mankind as realized in the teeming black ghetto. /Jacob Lawrence

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
