In The Daily Mail, May 27, 2007, Graham Gouldman said: "Art For Art's Sake was a wry comment on the values of the music business, which became ever more apparent as our career developed."
In a BBC Radio Wales interview, Eric Stewart said: "The song came about from Graham Gouldman's father, Hymie. He used to say, 'Boys, art for art's sake. Money for God's sake, okay!'" (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)
