Quote for the day - Kitaj on reading and painting

"As everyone knows pictures and books can change the inside of one's head, so I collect them around me in expectation. They excite me like one's other vices do. I come alive in heightened anticipation of pleasure which seeps into the habit of painting. Every good painter I know is a talented reader". R B Kitaj 1994.
