"Art has an important place in my life and my work. I have been inspired by many painters and have always believed that art is not only a part of culture but also a part of life, that it should be shown to everybody and that museums should be supported and encouraged. Museums play a social role and have the task of educating the public, even if sometimes they are a source of shock and confusion. Thus a permanent dialogue is established between art and those who admire it. A museum is a living place. So is creation, even that of deceased or unknown artists"
Yves Saint Laurent
