Some words of wisdom from André Breton

”To see, to hear, means nothing. To recognize (or not to recognize) means everything. Between what I do recognize and what I do not recognize there stands myself. And what I do not recognize I shall continue not to recognize.”

“No rules exist, and examples are simply life-savers answering the appeals of rules making vain attempts to exist.”

-Both from SURREALISM & PAINTING, 1928

“Artistic imagination must remain free. It is by definition free from any fidelity to circumstances, especially to the intoxicating circumstances of history.”
