“The performance of the acrobat appears easy and relaxed, but let us not lose sight of the long preliminary ordeal which enable him to give this effect. It is the same in painting. With hard work, the mastery of one’s medium should pass from the conscious to the subconscious; only then can one successfully give an impression of spontaneity.”
