POUSSIN ON PAINTING

No visible object can be presented without light.
No visible object can be presented without a transparent medium.
No visible object can be presented without a boundary.
No visible object can be presented without color.
No visible object can be presented without distance.
No visible object can be presented without an instrument.
What follows cannot be learnt, it is born with the painter.

---Nicholas Poussin (1594-1665)


Adam and Eve had many advantages, but the principal one was that they escaped teething.
Mark Twain (1835-1910)
