Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels.

— Francisco Goya

The most beautiful Francisco Goya quotes that are new and everybody is talking about

First be a magnificent artist and then you can do whatever, but the art must be first.


The dream of reason produces monsters.

Imagination deserted by reason creates impossible, useless thoughts. United with reason, imagination is the mother of all art and the source of all its beauty.

Fantasy abandoned by reason produces impossible monsters


But where do they find these lines in nature? I can only see luminous or obscure masses, planes that advance or planes that recede, reliefs or background. My eye never catches lines or details.

I have had three masters, Nature, Velasquez, and Rembrandt.


Monsters are the result of the sleep of reason.
