"Art as a word for us to use describes the invention of that part of creation that is man's. All nature is bearing down upon us day after day. We cannot avoid it. Every form that we could use is there. But away from nature and in the seclusion of the mind we can invent arrangements to be found nowhere else. One answer to the question, "What is it?" is to point to the picture and say, "It is that. It exists nowhere else.""
