Yuri Pimenov (1903-1977) was a prominent Soviet painter.
“Art has a subtle soul. The more intelligent and more complicated man becomes, the richer and deeper his art will be. Art requires intelligence, not craftsmanship. It requires a special and delicate organization of one’s soul… Its search for the real, its exploration of the world has no limits,” the painter wrote.
