“I am deeply indebted to my patrons for the very substantial help financially which they gave us. These benefactors enabled me to bring up a numerous family in the circumstances of poverty and to make it possible to paint.”
—Carl Schmitt, 1959
Gertrude Holding Baby, March 29, 1926, charcoal on paper.
“Prosperity as an ideal (the philosophy of cunning) is sterile. An institution, a society, or an individual based upon it is doomed, because it contains not in itself either the seed of birth or rebirth. Its appeal lies in the fact that while it lasts it succeeds perfectly.” (October 1929)
St. Francis, etching, January 1926
“Christ was something more than an English gentleman. The best people voted for his death. He died alone and a fool. No English gentleman fears death if it is done by the best people and gregariously. What he really fears is making a fool of himself like St. Francis, and doing it alone.” (1931)
