„Naturally, form has come to take precedence over color with me, though when I began painting color predominated. Slowly artistic evolution carried from color to form and while I still employ color, of course, it is the drawing which assumes the place of first importance in my pictures.“

Quote of Picabia, in an interview in an American newspaper, 1915; as quoted by William A. Camfield, in Francis Picabia: His Art, Life and Times, Princeton, 1979, p.77
Picabia emphasised that line took precedence over colour in his works since 1915

„The first thing to change in my painting was the color [c. 1908-09]. I forsook natural color for pure color. I had come to feel that the colors of nature cannot be reproduced on canvas. Instinctively I felt that painting had to find a new way to express the beauty of nature.“

—  Piet Mondrian Peintre Néerlandais 1872 - 1944

„We separate color and drawing because we have to. But nature doesn't. She doesn't give something a shape, for coloring it only afterwards. Form and color are inherent properties of the object that we have got as thing to paint. If we neglect one of both, we only give half.“

—  Willem Roelofs Dutch painter and entomologist (1822-1897) 1822 - 1897

translation from original Dutch: Fons Heijnsbroek
(original Dutch: citaat van Willem Roelofs, in het Nederlands:) Wij scheiden kleur en teekening af, omdat wij dat wel moeten. Maar de natuur doet dat niet. Zij geeft niet iets een vorm, om het daarna te kleuren. Vorm en kleur zijn inhaerente eigenschappen van het voorwerp, dat ons te schilderen is gegeven. Verwaarloozen wij een van beide, dan geven wij slechts de helft.
Quote of Roelofs, in Elsevier's geïllustreerd maandschrift..., Oct. / Nov. 1891; as cited in an excerpt in the RKD Archive https://rkd.nl/explore/excerpts/219, The Hague

„When I have to think about it, I know the picture is wrong. And sizing is a form of thinking and coloring is too. My instinct about painting says, 'If you don’t think about it, it's right.'“

—  Andy Warhol American artist 1928 - 1987

As soon as you have to decide and choose, it's wrong. And the more you decide about, the more wrong it gets. Some people, they paint abstract, so they sit there thinking about it because their thinking makes them feel they're doing something. But my thinking never makes me feel I'm doing anything.

„I believe that one should not think so much about nature when painting, at least not during the conception of the picture. Make the color sketch exactly as one has felt something in nature. But my personal feeling is the main thing. Once I have established it, lucid in tone and color, I must bring in from nature the things that make my painting seem natural, so that a layman will only think that 1 have painted it from nature.“
