Art is harmony. Harmony is the analogy of contrary and of similar elements of tone, of color and of line, conditioned by the dominate key, and under the influence of a particular light, in gay, calm, or sad combinations.

Painting is the art of hollowing a surface.

They see poetry in what I have done. No. I apply my methods, and that is all there is to it.

Under a blazing mid-afternoon summer sky, we see the Seine flooded with sunshine... people are strolling, others are sitting or stretched out lazily on the bluish grass.

Originality depends only on the character of the drawing and the vision peculiar to each artist.
