Gerritt Reitveld "In general, art is not something that one enjoys. Art is more a burden for the ordinary citizen than a delight. Art certainly does not mean making something beautiful. Art does not have any transcendental aim or implications. Art has the purpose of developing a specific sense and making it healthy." (architecture, furniture)
