Quote by Claude Debussy
Art is the most beautiful deception of all. And although people try to incorporate the everyday events of life in it, we must hope that it will remain a deception lest it become a utilitarian thing, sad as a factory.
This quote suggests that art's beauty lies in its ability to deceive. While artists may try to depict everyday life in their work, it is crucial that art maintains its deceptive qualities, avoiding becoming a mere utilitarian object or resembling the sadness and monotony of a factory. The quote reinforces the idea that art's purpose is to transport and evoke emotions rather than simply serving practical or functional purposes.
