André Malraux – French writer and politician

André Malraux

«Each of the masterpieces is a purification of the world, but their common message is that of their existence and the victory of each individual artist over his servitude. All art is a revolt against man’s fate. Art is an anti-fate.»André Malraux, The Voices of Silence (1951),
in Writings on Art I, Gallimard, Bibliothèque de la Pléiade, p. 897.
