What do you think an artist is? An imbecile who has only eyes, if he is a painter. . . . Far, far from it: at the same time, he is also a political being, constantly aware of the heartbreaking, passionate, or delightful things that happen in the world, shaping himself completely in their image. . . . No, painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war for attack and defense against the enemy.

–Pablo Picasso to Simone Téry, 19451(p152-153)
