“All art is but imitation of nature.”
“Art is not merely an imitation of the reality of nature, but in truth a metaphysical supplement to the reality of nature, placed alongside thereof for its conquest.”
“Art, as far as it is able, follows nature, as a pupil imitates his master; thus your art must be, as it were, God's grandchild.”
“Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.”
“Scientists seek to know the mind of god while engineers seek to imitate Him.”
“The mission of art is to represent nature not to imitate her.”
William Morris Hunt
“Trust yourself. Think for yourself. Act for yourself. Speak for yourself. Be yourself. Imitation is suicide.”
