Ayn Rand
“The position of an art in the scale of human knowledge is, perhaps, the most eloquent symptom of the gulf between man's progress in the physical sciences and his stagnation (or, today, his retrogression) in the humanities.”
Ayn Rand, The Romantic Manifesto

E.A. Bucchianeri
“Let's always try to paint the truth ... our art must be made to mean something.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly
