  View quote | Picasso, Pablo quotes

Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.
  View quote | Picasso, Pablo quotes

Painting is something that takes place among the colors, and one has to leave them alone completely, so that they can settle the matter among themselves. Their intercourse: this is the whole of painting.

Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.
