Oskar Kokoschka
How do I define a work of art.It is not an asset...but a man's timid attempt to repeat the miracle that the simplest peasant girl is capable of..magically producing life out of nothing.
Kokoschka quotes
Open your eyes at last and see...now I will open the book of the world for you,there are no words in it,just pictures
Kokoschka
The awareness of imagery is part of living..a life which derives its power from within itself will focus on the perception ...of images




Kokoschka Oskar quotes
I cannot say why I wanted to paint.The only answer is in the pictures themselves.
Kokoschka Oskar
I painted a double portrait of Alma Mahler and myself...these litho graphs will always remain..in contrast to all the contemporary art of the period.. a myth,a created symbol heavy with the meeting,begetting and parting.
Oskar Kokoschka quotes
My painting (The Tempest or Bride of the Wind)shows me with the woman I once loved..in a shipwreck in mid-ocean.We look very strong and calm in our expressions.
Oskar Kokoschka
My plays are not diadactic..they simply express my attitude to my world
