„Art is not made to decorate rooms. It is an offensive weapon in the defense against the enemy.“

—  Pablo Picasso, La peinture n'est pas faite pour décorer des appartements. C'est un instrument de guerre offensive et défensive contre l'ennemi. La pintura no se ha inventado para adornar las habitaciones. La pintura es un arma ofensiva, en la defensa contra el enemigo. Les lettres françaises (1943-03-24).
