the MANIFEST

 

  • Art does not pertain to the people, it is destiny of the elected.
  • All art of painting should be decorative is art's aesthetics.
  • In painting the form is everything, content is nothing.
  • The true artwork does not require a petty decoration.
  • The greatest missing of painting is as pleasing to the eye as elevating the soul.
  • Any attempt to reduce painting to belles-lettres is a Monument of good will and nonsense.
  • The Plot in painting is to display bad taste.
  • It's better to be immoral, rather than to have bad taste.
  • An original mission of the true artist is to create Images.
  • All paintings are useless and, apparently, are not necessary to anybody
