‘By the seduction of the first idea the painter attains to the universal. It is the seduction which determines the choice of the motif and which corresponds exactly to the painting. If this seduction,if the first idea vanishes , all that remains .........is the object which invades and dominates the painter.
— Pierre Bonnard.
