retro-quotes: a series of germane remarks, by others, plucked from all over the place, and from all over the time - #48

"Bosch and Brueghel were ahead of their time. They were fighting against enormous odds to make statements that might be seen as sinful. Looking at their pictures, I see these brown and red tones that seem to evoke history and madness at the same time, and I want to commend them for taking this plunge into madness...." -- Ed Ruscha, on his Vienna show 'The Ancients Stole All Our Great Ideas', New Yorker interview, 2013 

(Title for show stolen from Mark Twain's autobiography)

(Ruscha quote via Our God Is Speed)
