Pickman's Mottoes

Uncovered a small, leather?, bound note book proporting to contain the thoughts on art of one Richard Upton Pickman, most seem to be distortions of other artist's thoughts.

I can't tell you if genius is hereditary, yet.

Classic painting paints the mask, modern art the face, I the skull.

There is no greater enemy to art, than the armed policeman in the hallway.

Every time I paint a portrait, I lose a friend. Must start using conventional pigments and brushes.
