I like all those painters who loved and had a strong feeling for nature.
The animation of the canvas is one of the hardest problems of painting.
Though the artist must remain master of his craft, the surface, at times raised to the highest pitch of loveliness, should transmit to the beholder the sensation which possessed the artist.
Every picture shows a spot with which the artist has fallen in love.
