“I shut my eyes in order to see.” Paul Gauguin
There is a quote from Gaugin in Musee l’Orangerie which relates to this one. Roughly rephrased from memory: painting is something you do while dreaming in front of nature.
(oops, pardon my spelling)
I’ll try and find it. I could use it as the quote for another day.
Have found it in my travel diary John! “In short, in painting one must search rather for suggestion than for description. Art is an abstraction; take it from nature while dreaming in front of it.” Gauguin
Thank you, Phillipa.
How can I convince you I didn’t misspell your name deliberately?
