For what is an artist in this world but a servant, a lackey for the rich and powerful? Before we even begin to work, to feed this craving of ours, we must find a patron, a rich man of affairs, or a merchant, or a prince or... a Pope. We must bow, fawn, kiss hands to be able to do the things we must do or die.
We are harlots always peddling beauty at the doorsteps of the mighty.
If it comes to that, I won't be an artist.
[scoffs] You'll always be an artist. You have no choice.
