M. What led you to become an artist, Mr. Fuchs?F. I think the influence of my father was very important in my becoming a painter. Although I don’t really consider it my true profession. I’m a singer, you know. I continued in painting because I was afraid to sing.M. Afraid?F. I was afraid of myself. I fell into a trance which lasted quite some time, and that happened several times so that I began to think that painting was inferior to singing.M. In what way inferior?F.

But painting is something I can do, and I think that the same message is in it, too, perhaps hidden.—William Mitchell, from “Ernst Fuchs: A Portfolio and an Interview”
