Jump to: navigation, search

"If there is one boring and tedious task, it is certainly that of art critics, charged annually at the time of the Paris Salon, to repeat their same opinions about the same artists. Critics have, in short, but one volume in their stomachs on the subject, and each one of them is required to periodically repeat this volume by simply changing a few words here and there." -- "Our painters at the Champ de Mars", Émile Zola
