    Hello Bestc

    I can't discover its provenance either. But try googling on this version:

    "The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work."

    You may have more luck.

    (It's curious; I would have expected the French to be e.g. "L'artiste n'est rien sans le don..." But that seems to google very lightly, in comparison with the English version.)
