Artists’ Roles, their Greatness, and their Force

“The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.

-Robert Hughes

“The role of the artist is to ask questions, not answer them.”

-Anton Chekhov

“It was a miserable machine, an inefficient machine, she thought, the human apparatus for painting or for feeling; it always broke down at the critical moment; heroically, one must force it on.”

-Virginia Woolf
