Lurid London

André Derain (1880-1954) - The Pool of London, 1906

"Art must not be intelligent; art is a jouissance, an enjoyment."

"The substance of painting is light."

"We were always intoxicated with colour, with words that speak of colour, and with the sun that makes colours live."

"I do not innovate. I transmit."

"Everything comes from nature and everything returns there."

André Derain
