Henri Matisse

A young painter who cannot liberate himself from the influence of past generations is digging his own grave.

There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted.

I do not literally paint that table, but the emotion it produces upon me.
