Money vs Art. If money doesn’t exist, art cannot be carried on

Money vs Art. If money doesn’t exist, art cannot be carried on
Ignacio Zara

The artist by Vincent van Gogh

“Where any view of money exists, art cannot be carried on.” This quote belongs to William Blake, do you agree with Blake?

However, other painters, authors or filmmakers have said other things about money and its relation with art and artist. Maybe, the most radical was Andy Warhol (and the most sincere too), and the cleverest Cervantes.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

Top quotes about money and art:

Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art. Andy Warhol.

An artist needn’t be a clergyman or a churchwarden, but he certainly must have a warm heart for his fellow men. Vincent van Gogh.

Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons. Woody Allen.

Light (detail) by Georges la Tour

Making money ain’t nothing exciting to me. You might be able to buy a little better booze than the wino on the corner. But you get sick just like the next cat and when you die you’re just as graveyard dead as he is. Louis Armstrong.

I hesitate to deposit money in a bank. I am afraid I shall never dare to take it out again. Jean Baudrillard.

We’re in an era where the demand is for immediate hits that are destined to become obsolescent. Six months later, everyone forgets the artist and the tune. It’s become like a con job. Producers, engineers, lawyers and accountants all make money, but the artists don’t. Tony Bennett.

A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore. Yogi Berra.

To the eyes of a miser a guinea is more beautiful than the sun, and a bag worn with the use of money has more beautiful proportions than a vine filled with grapes. William Blake.

It is not helpful to help a friend by putting coins in his pockets when he has got holes in his pockets. Elizabeth Bowen.

Write a novel if you must, but think of money as an unlikely accident. Pearl S. Buck.

The gratification of wealth is not found in mere possession or in lavish expenditure, but in its wise application. Miguel de Cervantes.
