"I wanted to examine the relationship between technique and art, and reexamine the usual definitions of 'artist' and 'craftsman'. If the word 'artist' is used for someone who creates, and 'craftsman' for someone who merely reproduces, how is one to explain the many artists who are mere imitators but who are not called craftsmen, or the whole populations of craftsmen in the past who were real creators but whom it seems paradoxical to call artists? Does the distinction lie in the fact that the artist manages to win personal fame, while the craftsman remains anonymous? All these definitions involve all sorts of prejudices that must be eliminated. Similarly, classifications into major and minor, fine, decorative and applied arts are unacceptable."
