Judy, in the artists Book of Lists there is a page of artists quotes that
may be of interest to you.


>Many of you have posted you are going to introduce an artist a week...
>I would be interested in what artists you are going to use and WHY.
>I am collecting artists as heroes (sheroes, too). Thanks to the recent
>post, I now have a photograph of Mary Cassatt (from the
> site). What I am including on my posters are a
>photograph and favorite work (one I admire). A quote and then one or
>two sentences why I admire that person's character - along with very
>brief biography. This is one way I can get values/character ed into my
>curriculum (
>Please help me create a list. This thread was discussed before
>(1999 -- but those files are no longer in the archives - I only found
>one remaining post). Include with your post WHY you admire that artist
>(cuts down on my research---smile). You do not need to find a quote--
>I have many artists quotes.
