like monsters

September 25, 2009

[Guardian] “Painting has been my strength,” [Agnes Varda] says. “If I go to a museum, right away I feel better. I go to films, sure, and I always listen to music, but nothing else nourishes me like that. In the film I show paintings that I love – Monet, Picasso, Francis Bacon. I need them. But we had to buy the rights to show them. Buy the rights to show something that you love. Can you believe that? In the time of the nouvelle vague you could just put images on the wall. Now they have agents like monsters. To show a Francis Bacon for less than 10 seconds, I think I paid 4,000.”  (read interview)
