Art quote

When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it - a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand - as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there's a clash between the two, it's bad art.
Marc Chagall

Wow. That is a really interesting way to look at art, comparing it to a piece of nature. I'll try that!
