"Is not nature beautiful in itself without the leaven of art? Why add something else in what is beautiful by itself? But what you call beauty is not in the scene that you see before you. It is something subjective and embedded deep down in your own soul. It is the emotional response that the scene awakens in you making your heart-strings thrill and quiver with a joy that knows no bounds but wells spontaneously out of your soul like a clear fountain of pure water gushing out from deep down the earth. This joy in the heart of the artist spreads itself over his canvas, guides his hand to limn unerringly lines of beauty, to invest his paintings with a light that never was on sea or land and to breathe into an earthly mould a life that ever throbs and palpitates till the end of time."
--- Bireswar Sen (1897~1974)
