2. 蘭卡斯特(Lancaster)是蘭開夏郡(Lancashire)的首府，位於英格蘭與蘇格蘭的交界，紅玫瑰為其傳統圖騰，所謂”玫瑰戰爭”(Wars of the Roses)就是與以白玫瑰為徽章的約克夏郡(Yorkshire)，在十五世紀為爭奪王位所引發的戰爭；時至今日，已演變成蘭卡斯特大學(Lancaster University)與約克大學(York University)每年舉辦的校際體育競賽。
3. “If painting is only a matter of copying faithfully what is before one’s eyes, then it may seem, that although this calls for more technical skill than just holding up a mirror, it does not call for anything profound. But if what is represented is something ideal, or an intelligent abstraction from many particulars, then such representation may seem to call for something profound.” – Rosalind Hursthouse, in “Truth and Representation”, as quoted in Oswald Hanfling, Philosophical Aesthetics, 1992, p.260
4. “The painter chooses something, and then he imitates what he has chosen, and finally deforms it. This last is where the art lies.” – Francis Picabia, 1921.
